A stroll 'up city', 3 March 2022

On Thursday I had a few things to do in Norwich so decided to make a day of it 'up city' as we locals say!

It was lovely to catch it just right by the cathedral as both male and female Peregrines were very active, flying around the spire and out over the Close. Nearby, hawking over the river from Fye Bridge in broad daylight was a large pale brown bat, most probably a Noctule that then disappeared under the bridge. I had to do a double-take as my first thought was Sand Martin!

On the walk back along Earlham Road I found Lesser Periwinkle in flower and then loads of Mind-your-own-Business growing along a pavement. In the cemetry a quick check of a few gravestones revealed Orange Ladybird and Cream-spotted Ladybird amongst the many Harlequins
