Male Rock Thrush at Holme (Alan Tate http://www.aabirdpix.com/ )
After suffering double dips at Portland news of an adult showing well at Holme Golf Course tempted us to dash to Norfolk where on a lovely Spring afternoon the Rock Thrush was performing admirably to its crowd of admirers. Later disaster struck with it being hit by a Sparrowhawk but it was rescued by twitchers and taken into care overnight. It was released the following morning seemingly no worse for its ordeal whereupon it stayed on site for a week.
