First British sighting at Mossy Hill of rare Siberian bird
An extremely rare bird was found in a quarry on Mossy Hill above Scousburgh on Sunday.
It was a first sighting in Britain of the Siberian accentor, which breeds in northern Siberia and both sides of the northern Urals.
A rare vagrant in western Europe, the bird usually winters in southeast Asia.
The photo was taken by experienced nature watcher Jim Nicolson from Cunningsburgh.
