Little Bunting – Newton – 22nd October 2017

Another wonderful October but totally different mix  to last year. Janet had caught up with the Little Bunting at Newton yesterday whilst I was minding my son’s computer shop. Out though this morning and struck lucky as Stewart Sexton & John Rutter had just found it feeding on edge of last sycamore east of ‘tin church’. They had spent two hours looking so good timing on our part. It proceeded to show really well but it’s strange stop / start movements meant that it went undetected whilst not moving. Seen in afternoon as well so hopefully may stay.
