ALPINE AC­CEN­TOR

Bird Watching (UK) - - Welcome -

With only 36 ac­cepted Bri­tish records, this moun­tain equiv­a­lent of the Dun­nock is rare, but it has be­come par­tic­u­larly rare in re­cent years, with only five records this Mil­len­nium. The last was a very brief sin­gle-ob­server record at Holme Bird Ob­ser­va­tory, Nor­folk, on 26 April 2014, and the pre­vi­ous record, also in Nor­folk, at Over­strand a decade ear­lier. Roughly a fifth of all Bri­tish records have been in April, and more than a quar­ter in May. So, now is as a good a time as any to be search­ing for our next twitch­able bird.
