'Hornemanns' Arctic Redpoll - Aldeburgh, Suffolk 16th December 2012
UK Rarity Photo Pages
This ludicrously obliging Snowball of a bird, often showing down to mere feet, landed on some ones ruck sack earlier in the morning apparently.

Note the overall frosty appearance, unstreaked rump (save for a few faint lines), buffish wash to the face, relatively large bill for a redpoll, small black bib, small red cap and very long primary projection.

It got to be said its one of the birds of the year, for me at least.
