Watton Brook Valley

A very warm afternoon with temperature highs of 29 degrees Celsius.  The wind was a warm but fresh to occasionally strong westerly.
I decided on another visit to check for migrant passerines, however, looking west towards the bright sun didn't help with checking for species and all I saw was the silhouetted form of a single Yellowhammer on fencing and several Wood Pigeons further along the valley.
Looking east with the sun behind me gave great views but little seen other than a single male Swallow flying along the valley and a distant hunting Kestrel.
