Neill just sent this fine shot of the Radde's Warbler at Moreton today - always a stonking bird, and it just shows that eastern birds can turn up in the North West too.
Wish I'd got a chance to see the big footed freak (the warbler, not Neill - if you've ever seen a Radde's, you'll know what I mean - great big pale yellowy splitty-splatties), but I was working for a change.
Mr Hunt explains: "It showed very well at times, there was a Yellow-Browed there this avo as well but we didn't manage to connect with it, let's hope the roll of eastern gems continues..........Sibe Thrush would do!"
Yup, I think I could handle a Sibe Thrush too...more pix of the Radde's at Neill's website (link on the right).
Eyes to the skies everyone, eyes to the skies...
