Not a mega rarity but an unusual bird for Rye Meads. What is it and why is the wing important in ageing it?

Mystery bird
Can you identify this bird? (Jan Swan)

5 Comments

  1. 3M Redstart. Nice covert break with blue adult inner greaters.

  2. Hmmmm, now let me think………

  3. Redstart. Had great views of one once in the RYM carpark.

  4. I recognise the photo but think you’re a bit mean to expect anyone to identify my aristocratic, clean hand from the titchy bit of pinkie still exposed.

  5. It was indeed a Redstart – thanks everyone who commented! See the blog about this in Recent Activities here: http://www.rmrg.org.uk/activities/a-nice-start-at-the-end/
