Two of two

The first vagrant wheatear to turn up in Norfolk was the Isabelline. Often stated as a ‘birders bird’ this is a straight standing mainly concolourous wheatear with a pot belly, short tail and dark lores. The tail itself shows a black distal half with no ‘T bar’ like our Northern Wheatear. The alula feather at the bend of the wing often appears dark and isolated. This one on Burnham Over Dunes was a classic. The first in Norfolk for many years.
