Sur­prise vis­i­tor

YOURS (UK) - - Our Shared Planet -

Hun­dreds of twitch­ers flocked to Dorset to see a yel­low war­bler. More than 200 bird lovers high­tailed it to Port­land Bill to see the na­tive Amer­i­can bird, which is thought to have been blown about 4,000 miles off its course from the US by Hur­ri­cane Gert. It is be­lieved to be the first time one has been seen in Eng­land. The birds are com­mon in the US and mi­grate an­nu­ally between North and South Amer­ica. Hope­fully, the war­bler could feed up be­fore head­ing south to Spain and Africa.
