|Hockham Fen 29/01/16. A wonderful place to be in any weather.|
|Canada and Greylag Geese on Hockham Fen 29/01/16|
Larger wildfowl included about 30 Canada Geese and a pair of Greylag Geese, many of the Canada Geese appeared to be sleeping on the water.
A couple of Grey Herons were seen within marshy fen habitat as was a pair of Lapwings.
Only one raptor was seen today, a single Buzzard seen in very good light. The brown upperparts and the mostly dark bordered pale under-wing with black 'hands' were seen in great detail in the strong sunlight.

We are now less than a month away from the first Adders emerging from their winter hibernation. The first to emerge will be males with the first larger females emerging about a month later...really looking forward to this.
