|Ancient Murrelet, Lundy. I believe I was among a group of three birders who were the very last people to see this fabulous little bird!|
|Nutcracker: I've seen just two in 40 years birding!|
|Little Auks: always a thrill to witness a passage of these Arctic sprites!|
|Aquatic Warbler: I've only ever seen these at Marazion Marsh,|
en route to the Scillonian pelagics!
|Cirl Buntings used to be really hard to see except at Prawle Point|
and Exminster Hospital: now they're widespread in the SW
|American Wigeon: virtually annual, my first was at Blickling Hall Lake|
|Well I thought it was a Gyr at the time! RGM subsequently|
i/d'd it as a Gyr-Saker hybrid. Hmmmmm....
|An exercise in pointilism! Honeys at Sandringham when they|
were relatively easy to see in several Norfolk locations
|Phal at Cley|
