Leucistic Fieldfare at Telford Crakeaway!

An unusual event got 'the lads' together today - a reported mega by Paul King (Little Crake) - in Shropshire!!?? Whilst I'd love to share some images with you.... It was a 'no show' for any of the assembled local and travelling birders at a section of the disused canal near Apley Castle, Telford.

A few of these....






and a couple of Water Rails was all there was to be seen over a three hour long vigil!






The only real interest of the day was a partly leucistic Fieldfare in the adjacent field. Never quite close enough and shooting through a thorny hedge didn't help but at least some distant record shots of this unusual bird were possible......
