A superb & very obliging male Desert Wheatear has been over wintering at Bempton Cliffs RSPB reserve in East Yorkshire.

I have been wanting to see this bird for sometime and some 12 weeks into it’s stay I eventually managed to see it to-day. It was found on the 19th November, a typical time of year for Desert Wheatear to arrive in Britain. They are often the last good rare migrant of the autumn to turn up. One of my favourite Wheatears. Also plenty of Fulmars were taking up residence on the cliffs. A couple of year ticks moves the list on to 130.
