Rare bird spotted in Kendal garden

Filed under Uncategorized

Today our local newspaper, The Westmorland Gazette, has reported on the sighting of a rare bird in a garden in Kendal.  They claim that the juvenile rose-coloured starling is the first to have been seen in the area since 2006.  Curious as to what this bird looked like, I headed straight for Google Images and through searching on there, I dug up this blog which records a similar sighting as recently as November 2009. Is this likely to be the same bird or could we have a number of them in the area?  The blog entry makes for interesting reading as it suggests that some birds are genetically pre-disposed to migrate in a different direction to the majority in order to help the species spread.
