The Bluetail was a 100yards away up the lane and after several brief glimpses by Groucho then Wizzalmeister I finally had stonkin views as it hopped nonchalantly passed me in the roadside vegetation ..sorted! (my 3rd in Britain). Too slow once again with the new camera all I could manage image wise was a well watched local rat under the bird table at the feeding station.
Isn't it nice to know that all that hard earned donated dosh the RSVP collect off one and all, goes on supporting Yorkshire rats!!!!.......give me a gun someone please.
Just up the coast and within scoping distance from outside the reserve toilet block a 1st winter Red backed Shrike showed well to the Sunday Spotters, us included.
