Black-Headed Bunting on Bryher

There was a superb male Black-headed Bunting on Bryher on the Isles of Scilly yesterday, captured superbly by Islands’ photographer Bryan Thomas. Worth keeping an eye out in Cornwall for another or this one if it decides to fly NW! Link below to ISBG website and photo.
