STOP PRESS MEGA: DUSKY THRUSH in East Kent










A first-winter female DUSKY THRUSH is present in Margate Cemetery (Kent) for its fourth day. Found by Steve Tomlinson, this fine and very rare Asiatic thrush was showing very well this morning when I and 215 others visited. The postcode for the Cemetery is CT9 4LY whilst the grid reference is TR 352 692. This is the first twitchable individual in the UK since that in Hartlepool (Cleveland) in December 1959. A vagrant well worth twitching - see my pix on the UK400 Club blog page
