Commuting home from work on Monday I spotted what I thought was a Buzzard being mobbed by Jackdaw, but getting closer it was actually a much larger bird being mobbed by the resident pair of Buzzard I see most days going to and from work. I could only have been the juv White-tailed Eagle that's been seen in and around the Broads of late. Sadly we couldn't easily stop but I see the Eagle has resurfaced at Buckenham so I may get a chance for better views this weekend somewhere nearby.
I recently moved back to North Walsham and needing a new local patch, I soon settled on a few of my old favourite sites, but they were spread around town. All are close to the old railways track beds and my new house sits at the apex of all 5 lines that once radiated out from North Walsham, these form the arteries joining everything up. My 'Birding Alone Old Lines' patch was born, revisiting the old birding sites of youth, via the Old Railway Newtworks.
