A Redstart flew away from the caravan park bush.
Leaving work as I drove down Lowestoft road at Gorleston, I saw a Wheatear perched on an advertising hoarding.
After work, I decided to check out Corton where the grassy field between the churchyard and the old sewage works sported up to 30 Song Thrushes on the grass as well as 2 Redwing. Most of the Song thrushes I saw here were a noticably a cold- grey brown appearance, I assume continental birds. Robins were everywhere, around 30 seen or heard (constantly "takking") in this area alone.
On the North Denes, Gunton Dunes revealed 2 and 3 meadow Pipits as well as 1 Reed Bunting which flew onto a bramble bush and perched briefly as well as a group of 5 Reed Buntings flushed by Rob Wil's dog! They flew up and over Warren House Wood.
With daylight at a premium and the light fading fast, I decided to drive to the top of the Oval.
A good decision, as walking down a calling Pied Flycatcher alighted momentarily on a bare tree before flying off. Looking on the Oval, a Redstart flew south from the NW corner.
