EL Sparrow and Junco

Twitching. Love it or Hate it? Yesterday was the former. Why? I went along to Calshot in the New forest to see the Spanish Sparrow. It showed well. I was able to take pictures. The locals served bacon rolls and tea. Great company. Other good birds as Crossbill, Bullfinch etc. Excellent. Then down the road to the very smart Dark-eyed Junco which showed really well too. They are such a smart American Bunting. Red Kite on the way home and Paulboy and Martin Redfern to share the cost of Diesel. Bring on the next twitch.......
