The Woodland Hide views a collection of birdfeeders and ponds in an opening surrounded by pine trees. It has your usual suspects; goldfinches, great tits, blue tits and coal tits. Best of all though, was a flock of 6-7 yellowhammers feeding on the ground below the feeder station. The males are dazzling in their bright yellow plumage, the closest thing I can get to a Norwich Canary. One male even fed at a feeder. I think my companions liked them more over the stone curlews. We then had a picnic outside the visitor centre. A treecreeper kept us entertained as it gathered nesting material, climbed a few trees near to us, hop onto the wall of the visitor centre and crept behind the Norfolk Wildlife Trust sign next to the door of the building. It did it several times.
