High-Jynx on Beacon Lane

This superb Wryneck was showing well along Beacon Lane, Kilnsea on Friday afternoon. Taking up position with the assembled birders (only 10 or so) and keeping well back, the bird ridiculously approached us. Unmoved by passing cars to the Sandy Beaches caravan park the bird fed happily on the road and in the flower beds before sunning itself on the end of a wall. As birders departed having had their fill, the bird hid in the flower bed before the YWT summer wardens arrived for a look at which point it decided to land within 2 feet of us before flying south to the Bluebell.

Best described as awesome!

Some more of the pictures.
