Very exciting, I had another new visitor!
At first I thought it was a Sparrow and then could make out some stripes on its side so thought perhaps it was a Juvenile Greenfinch, but it was fairly small and I thought it was rather early for a Juvenile yet.
I took some photos so I could zoom in and confirm what bird it was.
Well, you’ll never guess!
A Lesser Redpoll!
I had seen some on Sunday on my ‘Local Patch’ when having a guided tour with another local Birder. I never expected to actually have one visiting.
Honestly, I cannot believe the species I’ve been getting. They just continue to surprise me, and yet the species I long for the most – Nuthatch is still evading me :(
