The bluethroat is a very rare bird to see here in winter. We managed to spot one on the East coast at RSPB Bempton Cliffs last year. But as beautiful as it was it lacked the blue throat. So when we heard that a young male had turned up on Willow Tree Fen in Lincolnshire, we had to take a look. He did not disappoint. A striking blue throat and cheeky character made this bird a must to see.
