MEGA! BLACK-EARED WHEATEAR!

MEGA BLACK-EARED WHEATEAR fem 1 mile SE of Happisburgh at Cart Gap, Norfolk.

Just north of car park on sea wall, viewed from beach then flew to gardens and no further view by 9.20am.

Discussion of today's bird on Birdforum.
Found by James Gilroy and only seen briefly!

Fortunately I don't 'need' it, as I saw the male Black-eared Wheatear at Holme in 1975 when I was 10!!! I talked to mother about this later on today and she told me that it was found by NWT Warden Peter Singleton, whilst walking his dog in the evening. This bird stayed from the 2nd to 21st June.
