Red-flanked Bluetail slight downer

was hoping to see another RFB this autumn, last one in 2009, but the edge was slightly taken off this beauty by its obvious injury on the forecrown though it did not seem to be affecting its behaviour -- amazing to look back to the football crowd crush in Dorset in 1993 and then add up my total of 8 birds from then on for even a very part time twitcher with no less than 3 in Lincs and hopefully another on still to come this autumn -- still one of my most hoped for self finds -- all shots taken late afternoon in very dull light in a brief appearance near the canal at Spurn
