UEA Rouzel

Had a tough day at work. The sun was out, I could hear Chiffchaffs and Blackcaps singing out of my office window, and the young undergrad birders kept sending messages about migrants and stuff. After lunch I gave in and went for a short walk around the broad. At last some migrants around - several Willow Warblers, a Garden Warbler found earlier by Michael, and Sand Martins. About an hour later Michael and Drew found a Ring Ouzel on campus - not surprising with all those reported in Norfolk in recent days, but nice find anyway. I couldn't resist another dose of sunshine and headed out for a quick mini-twitch. Nice female thing, was rather skittish but showed OK for short periods. Too quick for phonescoping though.
