No time for the usual Sunday Post ( no not the one featuring 'Oor Wullie' and the 'Broons' ). It'll be on tomorrow. Just a short word though. ADMc sid that one or two people are discussing the Cresswell Bittern pic on Northumbrian Birding.

Yep it sure does look like an American in that shot! Brown cap, Chestnut throat streaks... please be a trick of the light....please....after all there are some good black streaks on the back. Aren't there?

Brian, any chance of some more photos...
