It certainly has been a strange week with many rarities seen. The week started of course with the Long-tailed Blue, a Mediterranean species and one that gives a Summer feel. 2 Firecrest in the garden on Tuesday, an excellent male Black Redstart on the drive of the house as well as several stunning views of the fabulous Pallas's Warbler in Horseshoe Plantation bringing Autumn back and then this morning Matt found a Snow Bunting up on Seaford Head giving it a Winter feel. Unfortunately the weather this morning was pretty dire and the light was not good, the bird was also not as tame as many Snow Bunting can be but it was still a lovely sight.
An unusual mixture here with another one of Tuesdays' Long-tailed Blue and the Snow Bunting.
