Red-Flanked Bluetail - Marshfield






Date spotted: 4th Feb - 1PM
Location: Marshfield - Broadmead Brook
Observation: Had a quick look at Marshfield in hope to see the Red-Flanked Bluetail today, we parked at Drifton Hill (plenty of space) and walked down following the other birders, we arrived and waited for sight of the bird (around 60+ birders there!) was showing very well and mostly staying around 25 feet away, but some birders wanted to get even closer, and kept flushing the bird further and further down the brook! Please respect the bird!
Weather: Cloudy, Moderate Rain, Cold with wind
Other Species: Red-Flanked Bluetail, Pied Wagtail, Buzzard
