|Watton Brook valley at Little Cressingham 27/06/15|
Swallows and House Martins formed the majority species as they hunted for insect life along the valley. A Kestrel hunted over the valley in this picture, and indeed, a further 2+ birds were seen further along the lane where they bred. A Little Owl was seen flying in its typical undulating flight along fence lines.

Also in the immediate area here was Whitethroat skulking in a hedgerow, 2 singing Lesser Whitethroats, Chiffchaff, and singing Blackcap. The pictured Blackcap was heard on a few occasions singing, here it was seen in an Elder. A number of pairs of Goldfinches were seen along the lane along with juvenile Blue Tits.

With breeding and feeding being a priority for birds at this time, some may consider it too early to think of autumn migrants, I did however find today a useful to predict where migrant Warblers may occur, to this end, I noticed today that Elder bushes are heavily in flower, such habitats will of course provide good feeding for migrants in Autumn, when they will use these food sources to fuel up for their southbound migration.
