Not old news...ancient news

Wow, an apparent Ancient Murrelet was found yesterday afternoon, where else but Devon. A potential second for the county this bird was off Dawlish Warren and the finder has just posted a very convincing description on birdforum. This is definitely one blocker that would be awesome to see. As i missed the LB Murrelet im hoping to get down if it gets refound but both exams and dissertation deadline loom. EEk. Round here nothing much doing except ive finally got my feeders back up and running with a total bird count thus far of a Starling, a Robin, 2 Blackbirds and a Dunnock. Where are my Grey Wags and Bullfinch of last summer?

Your Grey Wag is on the beach at Sewerby - would recognise it anywhere. Not too sure about your Bullie though!

Thats a relief! See him in the spring i guess. As for the Bullie, well...
