White-spotted Bluethroat

A short blog, only two pictures and neither of those are particularly good. It was still worth recording though, Bluethroat is a life tick. Even better this appears to be a White-spotted Bluethroat which a quick Google search indicates as being a rarer subspecies than the Red-spotted Bluethroat.

Half an hour waiting in the freezing cold for about thirty seconds with the bird. Saw it, got a record shot, but then waited another two hours to get a better picture. It didn't happen. Might try again if it is still there next week.

Location West Rise Marsh. Great find by #naturebotherer.
