Nice, but the wrong colour ?

After a good couple of hours badminton this morning decided to get out and check patch. The fog of the last few days has gone but we still have leaden sky's. A few thrushes still in residence with Blackbirds still holding the majority. Not a great deal to be had around Brough, or so i thought ? After checking the majority of gardens for 4 Robin, 2 Chiffchaff, 3 Goldcrest and a Blackcap it was time to check the tattie rig. A Redpoll, which was probably yesterdays Mealy was sat on the tractor at the foot of the rig briefly. Then 1 of the Chiffchaffs was bounding up the rig, half way up though flushed a very late Bluethroat, which showed very well in the gloom. Not had any Bluethroats on patch, then get 2 in the space of a fortnight ! Hopefully the weather may clear tomorrow so i can try for better shots, if its still there.
