Excellent shots Dougie :thumb: , we had a few of them in our garden a couple of years ago. They didn't stay long but ate all of the berries on the bushes before going to other gardens, beautiful birds and quite rare around here - they migrate to these parts from Scandinavia, don't they?

They usually descend on our village at some stage, usually followed by a horde of 'twitchers' bestrewn with more L-series glass than WEX :lol:

I flock of them flew through our estate last year, and there was about 20 birdwatchers with cameras turn up out of no where :-D
