|Thompson Water 19/01/13|
A walk through the woodland that runs from Thompson Water to Thompson Common produced 30+ Siskins feeding silently in the crown of a couple of Alders. Also in the woodland, typical species encountered included Green Woodpecker, Treecreeper, Nuthatch, Coal Tits, Blue Tits, and Goldcrests.
Collared Doves are a daily occurrence as are Wood Pigeons.
Hockham (mid-late afternoon). Not a great variety of species seen on this visit to the Galleyhill area, although the expected Coal Tit, Blue Tits, and Goldcrest, were feeding high in the crown of pine trees.
A number of Wrens were seen, these delightful little birds will probably find some warmth deep within the thick layers of dead bracken on the woodland floor during hours of darkness.
Driving along the lane back to the main Watton to Thetford road, several Blackbirds were seen on the woodland floor feeding amongst the leaf litter.
