We’ve had some high winds and fast moving weather systems recently in East Anglia. Clouds, some with and some without rain, have been whipping across the Suffolk countryside.
These photographs were taken in less than a minute as we drove through the pleasant village of Little Glemham. It was almost a Hitchcock moment with the sudden darkening of the sky, but without the multiple flocks of birds.
And, then back in Ipswich on Monday, walking through Christchurch Park, it was all jolly waving daffodils in the bright spring sunshine . . .
and I spotted . . . a flashy, noisy bird who turned out to be camera shy!

Excellent pictures and amusing commentary.
😊 Thanks – not quite Constable clouds on this occasion.
Yes indeed, today has been a case in point. Everything from rain, to sulky grey, to scudding clouds across a blue sky, to highish winds … and all before 4 o’clock.
I think some areas had hail too.
Hard to keep up with! Could that colourful fellow be a fairy wren – or too large for that?
It is quite a big bird, just a boring old magpie not sure what your Australian equivalent is.
Just checked that out. Our magpies are no relation at all. Ours are black and white and great characters with a chortling lyrical song.
Nothing too great about our magpies screeching ‘song’!
I made a recording of ours last year but couldn’t work out how to get it off my phone and upload it to WordPress. But there are plenty of examples on the internet.
Yes, some birds are amazingly musical. It sounds a bit like an underwater noise, quite gurgling.
