2nd – 8th March

With the wind easing from the gales of the 1st we enjoyed a few days of cold but bright, occasionally sunny days. Having been W’ly, the wind shifted to a brisk N’ly on the 4th becoming rather gusty after dark. It felt less cold from 6th and a spell of rain after dark saw the week out.

Birding opportunities were very limited this week but 5 male Blackbirds chasing noisily through the garden on 3rd really startled Oswald. Interestingly, and rather sadly, I saw a recently fledged Blackbird floating drowned in the Wensum in Norwich on 6th. It could only have been out of the nest for about a week having hatched from an egg that could conceivably have been laid at the end of January.
