Bluethroat surprise

28th May 2008 - early rain then mist/fog E1/2
Finally the strong NE wind of the last few days dropped and a singing male Red-spotted Bluethroat was a surprise find at South Walney Nature Reserve this evening. Easily the bird of the spring so far, although generally elusive, it showed well on and off.
