A Mega Twitch

I have never considered myself a twitcher but during the last week I have spent fifteen hours on the Pennine moors looking for an illusive bird called a Wryneck. Its a bird that I have never seen before and breeds in the forests of Scandinavia and sometimes in the highlands of Scotland. Its cryptic plumage and habits of feeding on the ground make it very hard to find especially as it is not much bigger than a Skylark. I managed to find it twice so enjoy this weeks gallery as I am unlikely to ever see one again and yes I still do not consider myself to be a twitcher!! Click here
