Knettishall Heath, 21 March 2021

A long walk around Knettishall Heath CP on a rather dull Sunday. 

After c6 Lesser Redpolls and a few Siskins at the start of our walk it was very quiet for most of the time. Towards the end however it was pleasing to note 2 singing Chiffchaffs close to the river and some nice fungi including a birch log absolutely covered in Hoof Fungus, still a scarce species in East Anglia. Some Cramp Balls and Velvet Shanks were also seen and as we neared the carpark along the riverbank a lovely Water Vole showed very nicely swimming in the water. Walking a circuit of more open ground near where we had parked then gave us 2 Woodlarks

On the way home we stopped at Market Weston Fen for another walk noting one more Chiffchaff, Yellowhammer and 2 Reed Buntings but little else.
