Rose Coloured Starling at Caddington Beds

A few days "Up north" again with work helped me to bag a Wood Warbler and Pied Flycatcher whilst on a walk along the river at Bolton Abbey. Dippers showed well as did Goosander and Mandarin.

A brief stop at Welbeck watchpoint delivered just Common Buzzard, Hobby, Sprawk and Kestrel before arriving in Caddington where the adult Rose Coloured Starling was quickly found in the paddock area behind Mancroft Road. A stunning bird that unfortunately kept it's distance during my short visit.
