Newbiggin Birds

My time the last few weeks has been divided between Chevington and Newbiggin. It is the time of year when every common bird is checked in case it is one of the scarcer subspecies (see last two posts). It is also the time when my copy of 'Advanced Bird ID Guide' by Nils Van Duivendijk gets the most use.

Fortunately the Snow Buntings found by AP didn't need any scrutiny.
