Suzanne and I headed up to see my family in Norfolk on Friday night and, with decidedly non-summery weather throughout, had a thoroughly lazy and laidback weekend – perfect! Saturday featured a trip to the pub to watch the Lions scrape home past the Wallabies (thank God they couldn’t kick…), a barbeque, and a little trip up to Wells for the rather stunning adult Rose-coloured Starling on the quay.
After checking my notes, it turns out that this is my seventh in the UK – but only the second adult bird. The first was a lifer for me, behind the Lowestoft Birds Eye factory on 18 June 1995. So, just over 18 years later, about time for another!
