A message this morning on Birdguides gave me cause to think “fuck, I’d still like to find one” and that was only when the message was about a Red-flanked Bluetail trapped on Hartlepool Headland.
How elated must the finder have been when they realised their mistake? Not a Bluetail but a White-throated Robin. You jammy fucker! Your sense of elation is matched by my sense of utter despair as I’m stuck at work with no real chance of going this week… unless someone wants to drive me there this evening.
