I thought I would take advantage of the nice day and clean my conservatory windows. Whilst doing this job, a few Blackbirds, Starlings, Goldfinches, and Dunnock, were all seen.
I then broke for a late breakfast, then, late morning I carried on with my cleaning duties. It was approaching mid-day when I finished, and around about 1158 I had a thought that this appears a good day for a Peregrine.........two minutes later a mid-day.....a Peregrine flew overhead in a west to east heading in a direct and quite leisurely flight. A flock of Starlings gathered to form a tight-knit group and were clearly intent on watching the Falcon depart the area. Perhaps in May I should wish for a Bee-eater overhead!!!!!
Little Cressingham (The Arms to Watton Brook)
|Robin in Bramble at Little Cressingham, Norfolk 29/12/14|
The highlight was seeing a good number of Fieldfares in the fields all along the northern side of Watton Brook. These beautiful Thrushes were feeding on the ground whilst a few were seen to take berries from a Hawthorn hedge.
In my immediate vicinity at Watton Brook, a Wren was typically skulking in the dense waterside herbage. This Robin and Blue Tits were also making good use of this cover in their search for food.
