Black-headed Bunting

As promised the excellent Black-headed Bunting photo - by P. Rawson
The bird was found in a garden at Robin Hood's Bay on 28-05-08, the first day of the fall, and watched for 20 minutes. The quick thinking observer managed to get some photographs taken.

Unfortunately, the bird has not been seen since. A cracking find, especially in your garden.

CAN YOU IMAGINE! I can't. I think I might have soiled myeself if that appeared at my feeder...unlikely this week as the rat young would scare it off :(

Ah the ever present Rattus norvegicus. I'd have thought you'd have trained Bunty up to sort them out?

If that ever happens to me I think I might remember to mention it to everyone I know for the next 20 years.

Think I'd keep quiet about the soiling business myself, slight cause for embarrassment and all that, but when your professional name is Rock Bottom, mmm irony as well....
