Hollowell Res. Last week, 27th November. Just when you think they’ve gone rare, three turn up in one year. This one a stunner by all accounts and a shame it didn’t stay more than a day. Largely white primary coverts (with black tips) suggest male. As for race … they are difficult without good views of a suite of characters. Nominate nivalis from Greenland, Scandinavia and north-west Russia or insulae from Iceland … I don’t know. Thanks very much to Bob Bullock for the excellent series of images below.
