Local Twite and a Wheatear (finally)

Did a spot of local birding this evening on my way home from the office, had a fairly decent result and was glad my thermals were in the back of my car as it was BALTIC!

It didn't take too long to locate a Twite in amongst a flock of 25/30 Linnet, I got a couple of record shots on my phone (below). Shame it was so windy, didn't make it very easy and the focus kind of went a bit wrong! Quite a decent local (York Area) bird I think. Congrats Tim on finding another cracker!

Twite (almost in focus!)

Moving on I managed to connect with a smart Wheatear, my first in the YOC area this year. Grabbed a quick picture of it before the sun set.
