A grand end to the year

A grand end to the year with a twitch down to Stow-on-the-Wold in Gloucestershire with Mark K and Mark & Ellis Lucas for a Blue Rock Thrush that although had reportedly been present quite a while had only come to light at the start of the week, as we headed up the hill into Stow it was unfortunately shrouded by fog and it never really lifted much during the time we were there which probably accounted for the Thrush being less active and showy than on previous days nevertheless we had two very good prolonged views of it sat in bushes for a while before dropping back into the garden and out of sight, I suppose it will be regarded as a “the jury’s out” bird but still worthwhile going to see and if accepted the last new bird of the year.
first view through the fog

second view was a bit closer and a little brighter

but only to have been a foot taller

A Happy New Year to all my readers
