A Lancashire Lifer

Well, I certainly played this one cool - spring migrants don't generally hang around but this beautiful male White-spotted Bluethroat did just that allowing me to get to grips with this species in Lancashire for the first time (my 297th for the county).

What a stunning bird! Fortunatley it waited for me to finish work and get up to Lancaster by 6pm. As I arrived it started to show quite well for a short while before hiding back in the thick cover. I just about managed to get this single shot of it before it hid!
