Rose-coloured Starling

 Completely overcast through the morning for a nice change with the cloud breaking up from lunchtime to produce another warm afternoon albeit with a cooling easterly breeze; the day's highlight was an adult Rose-coloured Starling which was present out on the point with Starlings on and off all morning - presumably / possibly / probably a different individual from the bird last seen on the 9th.

Other birds comprised 2 Black Redstarts, 5 Common Scoter, a Fulmar, 4 Mediterranean Gulls, a Reed Warbler and 8 Swifts.

Ringing: Reed Warbler 1, Starling 1, House Sparrow 1, Linnet 5

Elachista biatomella is a nationally scarce species with Landguard one of the few Suffolk sites
