A County First!

Though it was back in Gwent and was in 2008. I got an email from the Gwent county recorder today to say that a Common Redpoll which was in my uncle’s garden in spring 2008 has finally been accepted by the Welsh Rarities Panel. The species has been under review in the country which meant all records went on hold but obviously acceptable criteria has been established for identification and the bird in mention obviously fits!
Here are a few shots of the little beauty.
