    Western Orphean Warbler at Hartlepool Headland yesterday! Following on from last years White Throated Robin, another "mega" for Durham!

    What's next? Conditions look really good for rare migrants at the moment, if we get some rain, as forecast today, who knows what might turn up.

    Did ya see it Jimibird?

    No Harris Hawk l am afraid, a lot darker in colour all over it's body with a quite long oblong tail, and l typically l have not seen this bird since l posted orginally before this l have seen it a couple of times....
    This week l will be mainly listening to music on my 80's amp and speakers.

    I reckon you're pretty close Andy, I'm not a photographer myself, I'm a member of BirdForum and pick out some of the best photos to post on here. Your male Reed Bunting (below) is very ,very good.

    I found one in a grass tussock on the beach, a couple of years ago!

    It isn't unusual to see them in trees and bushes, particularly at this time of the year, when they are still singing

    Glad to hear you are enjoying your new hobby! The first couple of hundred are relatively straightforward, 200-300 it gets progressively harder and 400+ , well, you can imagine. The "big listers" i.e. over 500 need to twitch every new bird, just to keep up with their rivals. It's not for me, I don't even keep a list anymore, even though I have probably seen 3k+ in various parts of the world.

    I have been in the game for 16+ years now, twitched a bit but not really very hard . I am only on 396. I do wonder if 400 will ever come!

    No, as I have a baby Norfolk and Suffolk is my limit. I did need it! Kids dont help the twitching. Wait till he is older, he can travel the country and carry the scope!
