Having seen several Rose-coloured Starlings over the years including a Summer adult, I was prepared to miss out on this latest reported bird. It's been fifteen years since my one and only Shire tick however, at Porth-y-Waen back on 18th November 2005, so the 'need' to see it kicked in! I thought I'd better make some effort!
Despite the lack of Rosy plumage, juveniles have a touch of class about them and are usually quite confiding. This one was no exception!
