Also seen was a couple of Grey Herons, 2 Mute Swans, and winter Thrushes. Several Goldcrests were seen including a small flock moving through mixed woodland, one of these diminutive birds was seen foraging and hanging Tit-like on the finest outermost growths of twigs.
I am trying to improve upon my knowledge of the insect world, and indeed, at Hockham this afternoon, I saw a large insect which at that time I was unsure of its identity, however, research at home revealed this to be a Sabre Wasp - Rhyssa persuasoria. I am sure I have the correct species here, but please correct me if I am wrong. UPDATE 13/11/16: One of my followers has recently contacted me and corrected my original thoughts on this insect and advised me this is a Lissonota species, an insect I have not seen before.
