Hi again
As usual I have had some enquiries to this unusual sigthing. The reason for my decision was based on stance, breast colour, wing markings and size. Of course, although that is my decision and I do realise that it is fairly unlikely this bird would turn up here, other factors could make it possible, such as nearby farmland habitat and the fact that other rarities, including double-barred finch which I had forgotton to mention previously were also present and several days of cold westerlies (and believe me it has been cool up here). Due to the nature of this sighting there will always be some doubt but I cannot put the bird down to being anything else. It also made a few calls which I can only describe as close to flame.
