Honneman's arctic redpoll

It was a great time and a first for Suffolk as a Honneman's arctic redpoll put an appearance in. Colin the finder of this fantastic bird originally put it in as a Lapland bunting but Lee from Bins soon realised it was something far more exciting and the word was out.
I think Aldeburgh fish n chip sales must have reached their end of year target this week as loads of twitchers and photographers descended on the normally peaceful town of Aldeburgh to catch a glimpse of this gorgeous bird.
It was an obliging creature too and did not mind in the least to the hoards of people who came to view it.
Special thanks to Colin as without him this bird may have gone unnoticed.
