Snow Bunting surprise

Yesterday was spent in the Hartlepool area again with the presence of a Western Bonelli's Warbler and a Pallid Swift enticing birders there. Last weekend, we were at Spurn on Saturday in the drizzle and rain and got to grips with several nice birds but no real megas. They all arrived the next day!

And then last week I had the amazing good fortune to jam in on a juvenile Bonxie on Rishton Reservoir before it headed off towards Preston. So it's been quite good for birds this past week.

Anyway, back to the latest birds....

Folks think this is a juvenile Pallid Swift - seemed a bit dark to me but I know very little about such things!
