I thought a nice American euphemism would be an appropriate title for a post about the stomkingly gorgeous vision of loveliness that is the American Robin
. It has been showing well on and off all morning near The Turf Hotel on the river Exe. I was very fortunate to arrive just as the bird was showing very well indeed just a few yards away in a hawthorn bush and was thus able to get a few nice digiscoped shots. As usual I took a bit of video footage too but the bird flew after only a few seconds, so it's a real 'blink and you'll miss it' type one. Superb twitch with showy bird and only a small crowd. I could easily have watched it all day. It was so good the excitement of it all has brought on a migraine, I'm hoping to sleep it off before work now!
