Shore Lark: This little cracker was showing incredibly well about 300 yards of the observation tower at Rossall point this afternoon.
A new bird for my list, made that little bit better having seen it as a county bird too - no big trips to the East coast or norfolk for me.
It was bitterly cold, the flood gates to my nose had opened and my hands were stinging from the biting winds. I stayed as long as I could before I retreated back to the warmth of my car.
What a stunner!
