White Lesser Redpoll In Sheffield
The beautiful photo above by Rob Baldwin is what a Lesser Redpoll normally looks like. The Lesser Redpoll caught in Sheffield over the weekend was rung last year. Martin Garner from Birding Frontiers writes:
It was rung last year as a normal looking first winter! Presumably something in the local gene pool means that its first adult moult produced these amazing white feathering – and there are more from the same gene pool.
