Two-barred!

Wowser! Three species of Crossbill in two days... possibly!

Once the rain stopped and I'd done some office-work, I drove the short distance to Hoveton Hall and immediately jammed in on the putative Two-barred Crossbill. Despite it being high in the larches, I managed some photos that show how easy it was was to pick from the rest of the flock: smaller bill, very pink rump, white tertial tips and a much more obvious wing bar than some people have reported...
