First site Twite !

Three weeks ago I put down several sacks of wild bird seeds at Buckton near the cliff top dell, today I went back for the first time since and found the area alive with birds, over 150 Corn Buntings, 200 Yellowhammers, 50 Reed Buntings and this highly confiding Twite, my first ever at Buckton. At times it was within 5ft of my open net and was in song but just failed to go in ! Other birds seen included Short-eared Owl and 4 Lapland Buntings. A good start to the year.
