Well after 3 weeks searching and applying hard for jobs today I finally got one and a job I actually wanted and not just applied for cos I needed to. Orwell Housing is an organisation specialising in large occupancy flats, ill be basically maintaining cleaning and Gardening the communal areas of these properties so a nice varied job. Start date 23 of September a nice birthday present.
Anyway away from the boring stuff and back to birding. Yesterday I was out early around Corton but it was quiet, Sparrowhawks didn't really help and I felt very guilty when I flushed a family of Red-legged Partridge of the path and into the claws of the waiting Sparrowhawk. The best bird though was a Cuckoo. Then a flock of 12 Barnacle Geese flew North, cant be winter yet surely.

Now to today I was due an interview for the Sugar Beet factory, now a wasted day really but had to go incase I didn't get the Orwell job.. No harm done.. So out early before this around Corton now my local patch as I walk it from home. Today migrants finally coming in with at least 3 Pied Flys and 1 Lesser Whitethroat as well as some Willow Warblers and Chiffchaffs.
At Cantly Beet factory outside the offices this Brimstone Butterfly on Buddleia.

After the interview I was allowed on site to watch the cracking Red Necked Phalarope, also here good numbers of Yellow Wagtail, Ruff, Green Sandpiper and Greenshank. a really really good site.

So a Cracking end to a great Day, don't say that often ;-)
