Congratulations! A wonderful study of this rarity and your lifer, Mike.
 
A brilliant close up and well taken lifer, Mike. Three terrific shots, well done.

Good grief, what a fantastic bird and what an excellent shot. Congratulations Mike!

It hurts just a little, because I drove from London to Norfolk in 1989 for one, and just failed to connect (mind you, someone was playing a tape of the song to get the bird to show, and it might have had the opposite effect).
