A 'leucistic' ORTOLAN BUNTING











This peculiar plumaged ORTOLAN BUNTING (photographed above by Lee Woods and Matthew Deans) spent the day yesterday on Landguard Common (Suffolk). Its plumage pigmentation was very pale sandy brown.
A juvenile RED-BACKED SHRIKE was also present in Suffolk yesterday at Benacre Sluice (image above by Dave Carr) whilst the main attraction over the summer has been the fine GREAT WHITE EGRET (superbly photographed in flight by Dick Walden)
