Rare Visitor to Essex

Travelled to Abberton Reservoir on Friday with my mate Eddie to photograph a female Desert Wheatear which flew in on Sunday, she is about 3000 miles off course according to a spokesman for British Trust for Ornithology.
It's the first one in Essex since 1987 and only 3 have been recorded in 100 years.
She is very obliging bird perching in the main car park, considering how many photographers and Birders were all around her. She brightened up a cold day for everyone there!!
This one is not sharp (into the sun) but it is showing her tail fanned out
Being in the Car Park I she perched in front of several different cars giving me some colourful back grounds!!

This one gives you a sense of how small the bird is
