Desert Wheatear at Severn Beach

Saturday 14th December 2013
What a treat seeing the first-winter male DESERT WHEATEAR at Severn Beach with my fellow amigos Andy and Mark. I had already made the trip to see it on Friday afternoon to make sure it was in the bag as it were, being a lifer and all that. On Saturday conditions were much brighter and the bird showed extremely well in the fine conditions.
We stopped off at Aust Warth on the way back where we saw the two Twite which were a nice bonus. Back in the garden bird numbers at the feeders are increasing, the most notable being the Goldfinches which have reached nine in number.
