Day 7 - Felbrigg Hall, then back home:
Today, as the weather wasn't supposed to be very good, we planned to not really do much. But, after a lie in we found that it was dry and quite bright outside, despite the wall to wall cloud. So we decided to go somewhere local, and Felbrigg Hall is where we went - also, the fact that Firecrests are supposed to be resident there was a very encouraging factor!
So we arrived and found a Treecreeper quite quickly, which was a good trip tick, but unfortunately, that was about it. We heard some very high pitched repetitive calls that could've been Firecrest, but they could've also been Goldcrests or Long-tailed Tits, and as we couldn't actually find the birds amongst the remaining foliage, we had to leave without an identification. We also heard Nuthatch and Wrens, but as I said, that was it.
It was a pleasant outing though, and I got a chance to have a go at some photography where you zoom whilst taking the photo (I don't know if this has a name or not), and out of about 250 photos, 5 were successful! So here are a few of my favourite, the rest are on my Flickr (https://www.flickr.com/photos/126206605@N02/):
