Anyway, I dusted off my camera and binoculars at the weekend when I when to Norfolk to see my parents. As luck would have it, there were a few decent birds very local in Sheringham. I pushed my year list up towards 80 for the year already.
One of my target birds was a very 'out of season' Black Redstart. A bird that I usually see high up on the buildings of Manchester city centre, and in the summer at that, it was nice to be able to see it at close quarters as it hopped around the surrounding apartments.
A great little bird to get on the year list in January.
On the lookout for insects.
An absolutely cracking bird.
