Arrived back home, from our ten day birding trip to Scotland, yesterday afternoon (click here for photos) and bumped into Tim & Dawn and Lee who kindly updated me on wildlife events in the parish whilst we were away. Apparently the peak count of Ring Ouzel in Felbrigg Park reached an unbelievable 14! I also missed Common Sandpiper, Whinchat and a female Redstart, found by Tim & Dawn, in the hedge south of the horse paddock – I still need Redstart for my parish list! Oh well, all things considered I haven’t missed too much and I’m looking forward to getting out over the next few days, as Spring migration gets into full flow.
Not the Redstart I missed in the parish on Sunday but one we found in the fog a couple of days ago on Holy Island:
