Song Thrush


  1. Nice vid Rich! I remember having to crawl on my hands and knees through some very scratchy vegetation to see my first, very well hidden nightingale at Salthouse Heath in Norfolk! I got savaged by mosquitoes and midges too, but it was well worth it. Lori's really racking up those ticks!

  2. Thanks Jon. Yep we were pretty lucky to get nice looks at this sneaky songster:)Lori's definitely getting a nice list going now...and Scotland awaits.....
