396 The Red Backed Shrike

Nope, they aren’t it – I’ve not seen it, but it was getting a number of birdwatchers quite excited.

I went for a walk in a seriously lovely part of the country side. Parham Nature Reserve, an RSGB site. There were some birds about, and quite a few people.

What I really loved about this walk, was that usually, all it takes is a “good afternoon”, or a “hi, can I ask what you are looking at?” To start a lovely conversation. This is how I found out that there is a red backed shrike in the area, apparently a comparatively rare bird to be seen in the area.

Everybody that I spoke to was very friendly and open, and delighted to speak about what they were interested in. Most people were out just to enjoy the environment, which was fully understandable.

There’s a church nearby which was originally built in the 7th century, but was rebuilt 40 years after Thomas A Becket was murdered church. Some relatively minor work was done by the Victorians during their refurbishment of churches.

I just want to write, but I prefer to stay away from controversial topics like politics. I am happy to confess that at the moment, I am writing for me. If you enjoy my writings, and I hope you do then that is all the better.
