Whitlingham Garganey and some stunning naturalised flowers, 28 & 29 March 2019

Yesterday I nipped out to a churchyard location I'd been given where the stunning Dog Toothed Violet  grows. Upon arrival I was greeted to a superb display of over 300 plants. These are now regarded as being naturalised as, despite them being a mainly Mediterrenean species they have been growing here happily for nearly 200 years!

This afternoon I paid Whitlingham a visit and eventually located the pair of Garganey on Little Broad that Jus had found yesterday. Kingfisher, Cetti's Warbler and Siskin plus plenty of Brimstones were also noted in a brief visit.

A few days ago (last Sunday to be precise) we had a Small White in the garden and a walk from Covehithe to Kessingland produced singles of Blackcap, Chiffchaff and Wheatear. The latter a male on the beach by Benacre Broad.
