Fluffy firsts


Just an excuse for a nice picture really….

These 3 little ones are the first mallard ducklings of the year at Walsham. They are about 4 days old. They are 2 or 3 weeks younger than the first on the river this year which hatched near Shalford.

Today’s sunshine has also brought the butterflies out. The brimstones and peacocks have been out of hibernation for a few weeks but today I saw my first red admirals and large white. No photos of those though, I only managed to take pictures of where they were a few seconds before….


Hello and welcome to our new blog!


I will keep you up to date with what we are up to on the river, the wildlife that is around and share pictures of this beautiful place and its residents…. This waving male Banded Demoiselle Damselfly is one of my favourites.
