Mistle Thrush at Marlingford 25/08/16 (One of many seen)
I decided to spend my afternoon break from work in the beautiful surrounds of the church at Marlingford.  This is a well-wooded parish which is dominated by the River Yare.
The most noticeable bird of this visit was a good number of Mistle Thrushes, many of which frequently dropped down from nearby trees to drink from a water trough within a small paddock.
A good sized mobile Tit flock kept my attention for a while, most were Blue Tits with Coal Tit and 3+ Chiffchaffs making up the numbers
