This beautiful bird arrives in the UK whe Scandinavia has a poor harvest of berries. They turn up November December and very rarely arrive in flocks in the North West sometimes in Blackpool.
2013 was the last sighting I saw of this fantastic colourful bird. It was in the strangest place outside a Supermarket where there were Rowan trees with thousands of red berries on.
These are the lovely images 9f this great rare bird. Taken with a Canon 50D and a Mark 100-400
