This is an occasional vagrant from North America. This one has been at Loch Flemington for some time, and I gather that on Sunday the place was crawling with twitchers. One resident told me that he hadn't been able to get his car out because of all the people wanting to see this bird. I'm glad I happened to be passing the road end midweek.
