|Male Cuckoo (from last year)|
Also around today; pochards, tufted ducks, herons, reed buntings, lots of damselflies and butterflies (including my first common blue of the year), swallows, a Chinese water deer, I heard some bearded tits pinging and I watched a rat climb a post (recently planted as a bird perch for photographers to use) and jumped onto a feeder hanging from a bridge of wire. That amused me, but it was all over before I could get a shot from my camera.

|Peregrine at Norwich Cathedral|
Back at Norwich, all the peregrine chicks have long since hatched and are now slightly large bundles of white fluff. The parents were circling around the cathedral spire. You can watch the action here on their webcam.
