Sp-Ring surprise

The icy northeasterly wind and remnants of snow in some places over the last few days have certainly given the end of the month a more wintry feel than the beginning of spring, and despite this I have seen my first Chiffchaffs and Stone Curlews this week so the migrants are coming back slowly.  It was still a huge surprise then when I was driving up the Watton road through the village of Breckles this morning when there sat a few feet from the road in a paddock was a stunning male Ring Ouzel.  Quickly spinning the car round, it then showed superbly well, often coming to within 10 metres of the car and often busy road, I can't remember ever having such good views of one.
