16th September. Sick as a Sea Parrot

That's it we can all pack in now the Autumn is over. As if the Lancastrian Wobbler on St Miles From Anywhere Island wasn't enough then today's event in Kent will have been enough for any self respecting (and lets face it twitchers have to be self respecting) twitcher to throw himself in the Thames and hope that a Giant Petrel might be attracted to his our her rotting corpse thus not making their existence on this globally warmed planet finally worthwhile. As for those lucky bastards that nailed this beauty I salute you, particularly the hardpatchworking stalwart who found it.

If only I was

Steady on old boy. Wait for your bush cam on Shetland to pick up the Siberian Blue Robin and then you'll be smiling.

Anyway, why are you wanting to twitch when you've ditched the pager?

Amazing bird. Predictably there have been some mutterings about the escape potential, but surely with the North-west Passage now largely ice-free we should expect more Pacific auks to start turning up?

I would very much like to see a tufted puffin...however....i wud not like to be in a fuckin 'tufty club'!
The word 'tufty' is surely reserved for red squirrels and a certain species of aythya...

ps....i agree with Andy...there will be loads more shit turning up now 'that' passage is clear...

pps...i wud like to form the 'tuff-shit' club....amongst other things...
