Hackford, Norfolk

For this afternoons break from work I decided to visit Low Road and Church Lane in Hackford.  The weather was miserable with rain and that horrible clingy heavy drizzle, however, the final day of January brought me my fifth Chiffchaff since the start of the year.  This bird remained mostly on Church Lane and frequently gave its familiar "hweet" call.
Whilst sitting in the car in heavy rain a Little Egret flew low over a field and settled alongside a hedge-lined ditch.  Initially on the field edge, The Little Egret then walked down into the ditch in search for food.
Overhead, a small flock of c20 Fieldfare and 2 Redwings passed over whilst in nearby hedges a pair of Great Tits, Coal Tit, Goldcrests, Long-tailed Tits (2), and a pair of Blackbirds were seen.
