It was evident that as I approached the valley, the carr habitat held several singing Warblers, and indeed, I heard at least 3 Willow Warblers in song, at least 3 Blackcaps singing, and a number of Chiffchaffs also.
|Jackdaw at Barford, Norfolk 14/04/15|
The warm sunny conditions was surely to benefit Raptor species, the first was a single Red Kite being mobbed by a Crow species, later, a very high Red Kite drifted west. Up to 4 Buzzards were seen and a single male Kestrel hunted over the plain.
A single male Swallow flew leisurely west along the valley was singing its beautiful twitter as it went.
My arrival back at the village saw ever-present Jackdaws around the church whilst a few other birds fed in a nearby paddock.
Back to work at 1500hrs following this pleasant walk.
