PINE GROSBEAKS once more in the frame

This autumn's irruptive behaviour is not exclusively confined to redpolls, Siskins, Blue Tits, Northern Long-tailed Tits and Bohemain Waxwings as we now have PINE GROSBEAKS to contend with....

Large numbers of these bountiful beasts are now moving westwards with at least one flock of 60 heading SW out to sea over Utsira - this could be the year for us - but I have lost count how many times I have written an email like this, they all seem to drown in the North Sea before they reach Norfolk and Lincolnshire (Lee G R Evans)
