Yes, the little blighter flew off before I got the chance to photograph it this morning.

Was definitley NOT expecting to see a Brambling - I had assumed that they had all gone north by now..!

I got three looks, two long-ish, one very fleeting.

A Patch tick for me - when was your last for the Park Tony? If I recall, they show up infrequently?

And I'm sure that you spotted my deliberate mistake: I meant Area 24...
