Local Magic . . .
Caught up with a couple of very good birds locally on Friday 25th March. The highlight was seeing the Short-toed Treecreeper at Landguard amongst the Holme Oaks in the compound. Photography was difficult so only managed very brief record shots, but it was great to see it busily feeding and even calling a couple of times. Also got my first Wheatear of the Spring (saw 3 at Landguard) so pleased to get one in before April! Before Landguard we popped to Hollesley and saw the Great Grey Shrike. Also of note, on the 24th I got us another garden tick as a Yellowhammer flew calling overhead late afternoon . . .total still a fairly low 74 (since Jan 2009).
