Desert for Dessert

An opurtunity presnted by a brief break from the torrential rain and a delayed meeting provided me with an excuse to have an early lunch and take the short trip to Rhyl to see one if its more famous recent residents - a female Desert Wheatear.

Despite the forecast break in the weather it was still windy and miserable but, thankfully, not raining. The star of the show performed well and it was a shame someone wasn't there to video the bird running towards the camera!!!

The N West has a decent record with Desert Wheatear and this is about the thrid for N Wales. In addition there was a very confiding male bird on Crosby beach around 2007 -see below and a spring male in Greater Manchester.

The bird suppressed in Cheshire is best not discussed.......
