Those of you in the birding community may already know about the White-Crowned Sparrow which has arrived in Ley (in North Norfolk). It seems there are various theories as to why it should be so far away from it's own territory.
The owners of the garden where it has made its home have, in my view, a pragmatic approach to sharing the news. Not wanting hundreds of birders and twitchers invading their garden, they moved the bird feeders to an area where the birders could enjoy their watching without disturbing the owners.
My one main criticism of the article is its reference to what birders may wear.
I just wish to place it on record that I do not own, let alone wear,
