Rose-coloured Starling - Colyford

This is a very painful post to be writing, as it would appear the local birders have all missed out on a would be patch lifer!

This morning I got an email saying a bird that looked like a Magpie but with a pale bill was seen in Colyford near the post office on 7th June....

Early this evening, the accompanying photos were then sent to me....


Arrrrgggghhhhh!!!

The bird was also seen nearby in Orchard Close yesterday, feeding off a fat ball just outside a kitchen window! And whilst searching for it this evening, a resident came out and kindly informed us that he had also seen it; he watched it walking around his front lawn on Tuesday!

Fingers crossed it's still there...
