June is typically dead birdwise but this lovely adult Rose-coloured Starling (I still prefer Rosy Pastor!) certainly livened up an otherwise uneventful Mid-summers Day. It was frequenting gardens at the junction of Pinewood Avenue and Breydon Way in a housing estate in Carlton Colville on the edge of Lowestoft. Elusive for long periods it seemed that it never left its favoured garden but popped up only twice in the 2 hours I was there. It was always just over the top of a hedge needing me to stand on tiptoes to get any shot at all but better that than being too short and not seeing it at all like some poor chap who was there!
