A More Successful Day

The day started around Wolferton, where a male Golden Pheasant was heard calling deep in the Rhododendrons, but it wasn't seen. Later brief, but good, views were had of a different adult male, which showed the green throat of the 'obscurus' form. From here we popped into Kings Lynn to see the white Blackbird. It showed itself well, being the first pure white (but not albino) one I'd seen. News of Stone Curlews had reached us and after a brief search a single bird was found. Around Lynford a pair of Firecrest were located, with the male singing. After trying to find some other gravel pits in the area, we came to Sparham Pools, where an early singing Blackcap greeted us as we got out of the car. At least three Chiffchaffs were singing and six Goosander were on the main pool.
