The Run Around
Prudhoe today to get a lifer, a Rose-coloured Starling (not the bonniest bird I have seen), it gave us the run around though. I lost count of the number of times I was around Cheviot View in the three hours or so I was there. At one point it was perched in a tree along with loads of other Starlings giving good views to some of the assembled birders however just before the rest of us got there, they were off. We eventually got it sitting on a TV aerial so just a record shot I’m afraid, still it’s a lifer so hey.
