A really rubbish week at work, with redundancy looming, good friends came to visit for the weekend.
A cracking day out on Saturday starting at Landguard where the paparazzi were kept amused by a very showy Subalpine Warbler, whatever the taxon this was a special bird, literally flying between tripod legs, a few of the "short lens" boys got a bit close but the bird was not really bothered!
The Rose-coloured Starling at Orford showed well but after the Warbler was pretty dull, is there another species that looks so good as an adult and so boring in other plumages?
An afternoon at Minsmere followed but not much was seen.
Sunday saw us at Little Paxton where the usual Nightingale show was in full flow, this reserve never disappoints.
