An early morning visit to Hockham produced at least 3 Hobby, one of which, a juvenile was 'scoped. The young Hobby had a buff-creamy tones to its breast, underparts, and facial 'cheek' areas, and lacked the red 'trousers' of the adult Hobby.
With the wind being a fresh south-westerly I didn't expect to see much evidence of migrants in the Watton Brook valley, and indeed, all I saw was a first winter female Stonechat. A juvenile Grey Heron was seen nearby.
Shortly after midday I arrived at Houghton. A check of distant skies produced soaring Common Buzzard but no evidence of passage raptors at this time. The only notable passage seen here was a south-westerly movement of Lesser Black-backed and Black-headed Gulls. A single Sparrowhawk hunted along a hedgerow, also a Kestrel hunted. A few Chiffchaffs and Blackcaps were also heard on this short visit.
