The wooded areas around 'The Arms' held singing Treecreeper and Goldcrest, also Nuthatch and singing Song Thrush were present.
Moving along the Great Cressingham Road, a small flock of about 50 Fieldfares were seen either in roadside trees or in nearby stubble.

One or two fairly well seen Bramblings were clearly males, their heads now becoming blacker as spring approaches. Once on their breeding grounds in Northern Europe, the Bramblings head, nape, and mantle becomes a solid Black and contrasts with the beautiful Orange throat and breast.
Having made it to the Watton Brook Valley I checked the many fence-posts alongside the Brook, I could see nothing, however, looking skyward, 3 Buzzards soared, with a fourth calling nearby.
Further north along the rise to Great Cressingham, I heard my first singing Curlew of the year on the patch delivering its beautiful 'bubbling' song.
