Well, this was a great Bank Holiday surprise. I never thought I'd see a Wryneck in Greater Manchester, let alone have it giving such good views. This bird has been on my 'most wanted' list for sometime now and I was sure that I was going to need to travel to the Spurn area on the east coast to see one.
So it was great to finally get this one so close to home and to watch it with a great bunch of people. Life and Greater Manchester tick.
Starting to get my birding mojo back now - roll on Islay in a couple of weeks!
