Its good to be back to the home patch!

 A quick visit to the North Wall this morning.

I was greeted by Stumpy, the now regular Greenshank.  Just as I arrived a dog (off lead ) literally galloped onto the sluice area disturbing a Kingfisher! However the Greenshank remained and on close inspection of the beak it does not show any obvious signs of damage and certainly doesn't affect its feeding

Curlew in Whites Creek

Black Tailed Godwit...with jewellery.

Must have been at least a dozen Blackcaps in the bushes alongside the wall. Here's a female.

A flock of LongTailed Tits were literally bouncing in and and out of the shrubbery.

Several Greenfinches chose the high viewpoints

...but my highlight this morning was this Redstart.
Superb bird.

The Breech Pool is amazingly, full again!
Must have rained a lot...we had none in Suffolk!

Hope to get back to some serious birding soon but it was just a taster this morning.
