Whitlingham Broad, Norwich (Norfolk)
Whitlingham Broad largely frozen today, but the reduced birdlife still included the juvenile Great Northern Diver, redhead Smew, redhead Goosander and a female Ruddy Duck. 3 Black-headed Gulls and a Great Crested Grebe have reached summer plumage already! 130 + Lapwing were standing in the snow on Thorpe Broad, and a mixed flock of Siskin and Goldfinch were in the alders by the Little Broad.
