Pretty cool end to the year. Blooming’ marvellous find by Kev Barnard, followed up by relocate by Tony Dixon. Tony’s phone calls (via the wonderful Dave Aitken) mobilised a team from Flamborough to search for the bird. The kale/brassica field looked most likely and before long Phil Cunningham was blurting forth “its right here- right in front of us” and so it was!
Don’t know ‘owt about sexing birds in winter etc but seemed to have dark base colour to nape feathers and rather shaggy dark throat feathering at times when feeding. Wondering if that makes it a (first winter?) male?
Here it is:
and couple more grabs
and a Happy New Year!
