Dave Parsons photographed what appears to be another SCANDINAVIAN ARCTIC REDPOLL in Bedfordshire this winter. This one was in a private garden that backs on to Rowney Warren on Thursday (27th), with approx 200 redpolls. I had a quick look in the same area today but couldn't find the flock.

.I also understand the Lodge ARCTIC REDPOLL was seen again Saturday, with 120 Lessers, and 40 Mealies (Ade Cooper, Richard Patient).

Other news for today (Sunday):
