Now having never seen one before, even though I was 100% sure that it was a Rosefinch I still wanted someone else to see it just to confirm it. It was playing on my mind all census and it was kind of odd being 100% confident that it was one but then at the same time worrying that it wasn't one! But my mind was put at rest when Rob saw it later on, phew. It then continued to show amazingly well from the Obs lounge window for the next several nights. And yer it was only finding a Rosefinch on Fair Isle but I loved it and couldn't wait to find my next good bird, of course this wouldn't be hard on Fair Isle another mental thing that I never quite got my head round how easily it could have been to find a BB!
|Digibinning at its best!|
|Simon later caught it in the Plantation|
|Where it showed from in the following evenings feeding with Twite|
