Worth the wait, this White-throated Sparrow at Old Winchester Hill, Hampshire showed well in the end! It was singing for short periods of time. Why on earth this bird was suppressed for so long is beyond belief - it's on the edge of a large car park on a public nature reserve. I've no problem with keeping a bird quiet if it's best for the bird or the habitat its in, but this just seemed blatantly stupid.

This Common Scoter has been present on the Huntspill for a few days, so brilliant to get an opportunity to photograph it.
