& a record shot
at least 8 seen today close to Flushing Meadows, concentrated by several days of icy weather - the most ive seen at one spot for a couple of winters.
one landed on this dry bank amongst the leaf litter - it still blended in superbly !
seems to have been a good day for them, heres a cracking pic from Gateshead Birders Website - taken by Paul Davison :-
and one from last year by me:-
and a quality one from May 2011, which i hope to get again !:-
