another one off the list!
yep an adult! how many adult birds from siberia turn up in the uk in autumn?
not a great many,less than 1%,most are first winters.
the brown flycatcher it was an adult,aged by the brighter wing bar and tail shape.
and the great snipe at flambourgh may just be a common snipe! but as usual its more confused than that.
phil c found the 'bird' it was flushed 6 times prior to 11am,confirmed by andrew lassey as a 'great snipe'
