Well my birding highlights this week have been a Black Redstart and a female Chaffinch.
The Black Redstart was brilliant but annoying as it occurred whilst I was doing a delivery into a Carlsberg site in Ipswich. I watched (as my truck was being tipped) a Robin and two Pied Wagtails harassing another bird. I couldn't see what from where I was stood so once I got a gap in the fork truck unloading the trailer I snuck off for a butchers. I couldn't believe I was looking at an adult male right in the middle of the trading estate. It was still there after an hour as I pulled out the yard.

Sunday was sunny so I got out early yet wasn't rewarded with any real good birds nor images.
Moulton Quarry seems to get home to a lot of Meadow Pipits and Skylarks but mostly Pipits. I got to 12 before doubting if I wasn't counting the same bird but did get 88 perched on the phone cable for me to check the images on the computer, sadly all Meadow and nothing of note. DOUG'S PIT had one Snipe and the odd Redwing, briefly a Kestrel but still quiet really. Plenty of Reed Bunting though sadly not close enough for now.
