Make a Fuss!
Sometimes you have to 🙂
This bird, trapped in the Netherlands on 18th October (that woul be last month) I think is extra- ordinary for this far west. Fits gallaie/homeyeri profile. Least all I can say is I have never come across one.
Of course it may still be around. Somewhere in the region of the land bordering the English Channel
So much white! The extra white running along the edges of the secondaries. That’s the main feature for me. You would need to see/ read the text and illustrations in the Challenge : WINTER to see what I am on about.
No further gen. Thanks to Mark Grantham who first flagged up a similar bird in Suffolk last month. And to Martin Brandsma who gained permission to share this one. In haste…
