First Twitch Ever!

So today I was planning originally on spending the afternoon at Tophill, ut then my Dad finally offered to take me to Bempton so I could see the Desert Wheatear! It wasn't until we were on our way back to the visitor  centre that it finally decided to show, and it showed really well! What an beauty he was! Definitely one of the best birds I've ever seen, and a highly successful first twitch!



I do have more pics (courtesy of father), but at time of upload my computer was being annoying, so I'll add them later.
