Mousehold Heath – May 2017

A brisk Saturday morning walk up to the Post Office to collect a parcel was made all the more enjoyable by a diversion via Mousehold Heath.

Considering it’s locality to the busy A1042 Mousehold Lane, once you get into the woodland the traffic noise is absorbed by the trees and shrubs and soon the morning birdsong becomes the dominant sound.

This morning I was stopped in my tracks by a call I didn’t recognise. So tune full – perhaps a Song Thrush, yet so varied I wondered if it was a mimicking Starling. Perhaps you can identify it for me.

Postscript

Many thanks to to Ursula, Nick and Ian who have confirmed that the bird is indeed a Song Thrush.
