Just a quick message from me to say that the decisions from the circulation initiated in January 2017 are now online at the usual place, to be specific at this link. For those of you who have been up all night thinking about it, the final answer (at least in our collective opinion) is yes, it was a White-capped Bunting!
Thanks again for everyone who submits records and makes our job easy(ish!). You will notice there are a few outstanding ones for 2017; we are grateful for these at any point but I will be in touch in due course for the next circulation. This will likely be May - early June.
In other news, we have also updated the annotated species list for Lesser Whitethroat - please download from here for more information. So now you can read about which taxa we think you are seeing!
