    Any birdwtchers here?

    WINTERTON-ON-SEA Hundreds of bird watchers gathered on sand dunes in Norfolk to catch a glimpse of a rare black lark.

    It is only the third time that a black lark, which was spotted in Winterton-on-Sea on Sunday afternoon, has been seen in Britain.

    The black lark, which is native to Russia and Kazakhstan, is black, with pale fringes to the feathers on its back and a yellow or pink bill. Black larks have previously been recorded in Spurn, by the River Humber, in 1984, and Anglesey, North Wales, in June 2003.

    Thanks for the update! I'll pass this onto my brothers who are twitchers.

    Regards,
