Siberian Accentor

Just a few record shots of the Siberian Accentor taken in very poor light on Sunday morning. Martin Bevan, Martin Bell and myself actually started out late on Saturday evening for the long and extremely tiring day out to Easington in Yorkshire. Well worth it to see this little gem from the east. Supporting cast included Pallas Warbler, Yellow Browed Warbler, Shore Lark, Mealy Redpoll, Brambling, Ring Ouzel and Firecrest and huge amounts of Goldcrest. There was also a Radde's Warbler and Dusky Warbler around but we could not connect with them.

A fuller report might come later when we have recovered from lack of sleep.
