'Well I say it's a damned cheek just showing up for half a moment before doing off!'
Yes I tend to agree so I spent an hour pounding round the Church and Caravan Park at Newbiggin yesterday in the hope the Rose coloured Starling spotted by TC on Thursday would re-appear but no avail. Most of the day was spent at East Chevington looking for and eventually seeing a very smart looking male Red backed Shrike.
It was way too far off for pictures and a constant sea fret made things uncomfortable so few images were had.
The one's I did take were distant and poor quality but had a certain character about them so I turned them into pastels.
sad old loner totally p****d off with life, work and modern society hence the propensity to head off into the wilds to escape.
