Third time lucky?

For the second time in as many weeks a bird at Cley has led me astray. The first occasion was when a Heron with white wings and a peach mantle got up and flew directly away from the vehicle. In the brief view suspicions of a Squacco Heron came to mind. A phone call and a text later qualified it had actually been a stained Little Egret. Damn!

Yesterday as we were checking the finch flocks at the eastern end of Blakeney Point a bird among them made my heart miss a beat. The peach and white pretender turned out to be an aberrant Greenfinch. Double Damn!
