Another late Sunday mega, well two but as real British listers don’t twitch Ireland we won’t count that, as a Sharp-tailed Sandpiper was found at Patrington Haven. This follows hot on the heels of last Sunday’s Sykes’s Warbler in Northumberland.
Don’t these rarity hunters do any birding on Fridays and Saturday? It’s no good finding a rarity on a Sunday afternoon and then releasing the news. I can’t get there on the day and some of us lazy fuckers have to work on a Monday… we can’t all just swan off birding you know and there are no flu viruses going round at the minute to use as a lame excuse.
So come on, play it with straight bat and get out there before the weekend. Let all us idle Twitchers share your rarities with little or no fuss.
