Birding Advent Calendar - 2nd December - Citril Finch

I don't normally do the twitching thing but on 10th May I was watching a spring flock of Dotterel at nearby Choseley Barns when news broke of Britain's only second ever Citril Finch at Holkham Pines. It was a case of right place and right time.
I got there ahead of the serious crowds and after a nervy hour long wait I enjoyed excellent views of it as it fed on the short turf below a stunted pine tree.
