White-throated Robin.

A major twitch ensued yesterday when a White-throated Robin turned up in a mist net in the made up county of Cleveland. managed to get over later in the day with Jase, Mark & Henry and after an hours wait were treated to good views when the bird flew in from the adjacent 'Doctors' garden and ended up hopping on the road in front of us! It then flew back into the garden and after a two hour wait we decided to call it a day and head for home as the area was becoming more and more crowded. No pics as I was concentrating on using the bins! Great bird though and only be the second UK record (discounting a bird on the Isle of Man).
