Twite 18 Dec 2019 Bradwell Bird Observatory (BBO) John Sutherby 28 Dave Wagstaff and I had 18 finches on the Obs marsh last Sunday (15th) we thought were Twite but the views weren't good enough to be sure. This afternoon we had the 18 birds on the marsh again and were now pretty sure of the id but still couldn't clinch it even after eliminating the "confusion" species Linnet. Then another 10 birds joined them! Then they flew towards us and onto the tops of the Obs garden trees. 28 Twite clinched! We watched them do a circuit of the trees before flying back out to the marsh
