A short visit to Watton Brook Valley.

Today was a very busy day as I had to take my wife to a London hospital to see a specialist, the first of many visits to come I feel.
Before setting off I paid a short visit to Watton Brook Valley near Little Cressingham for another check on migrants.  A good count of 400+ Starlings and 12 Stock Doves occupied overhead wires along the valley.  Checking the valley east of the road produced a juvenile Stonechat on fence-posts and fencing alongside some very lush habitat.  Dunnock and Wren was also noted here.
