TWO-BARRED CROSSBILLS arrive in force



In line with a huge influx into southern Scandinavia perhaps involving many thousands of birds, a minimum of 6 birds arrived today in East Anglia as winds freshened from the North East - a juvenile at Gramborough Hill, Salthouse, this cracking male at Cley Beach, a male and a juvenile at Holme Firs (all North Norfolk) and two juveniles on Havergate Island in Suffolk. Eddie Myers obtained these excellent shots above as the bird showed very well about 250 yards east of Coastguards for just over half an hour before flying southwest. A precursor of more to come
