9th December, 2012 Aldeburgh, Suffolk

With late news last night of an Hornemann's Arctic Redpoll showing well on the beach at Aldeburgh, and this is a specie I have always wanted to see, Doreen and myself decided to twitch it today, meeting Richard and John at the site. Superb views of it feeding, bathing and flying from down to just a few feet. Needless to say took far to many pictures and here is a selection.

Having a good splash.

Drying off after a bathe in a puddle and showing its extensive rump.
