Threxton (Watton Brook Valley)

Once again, a very short visit to the patch due to continuing dental pain, nevertheless, the very bright, almost cloudless skies and a late afternoon temperature helped raise spirits a little.

Goldcrest
Since my last visit to this locality, when it was pretty quiet, it seemed evident that there has been an arrival of Chiffchaffs with a number of calling birds in the peripheral bushes and trees around the Sewage Treatment works.
I did not see any other Warbler species, however, there was good numbers of Goldcrests calling from within the conifer screen.
Swallows and House Martins were conspicuous by their absence on this visit.
A couple of young Pied Wagtails and a Grey Wagtail were seen.  At least 5 Stock Doves were present in the area.
