Comments

Essentially unknown in northeast Atlantic in spring. Did this bird winter locally? Plumage seemed fresh similar to the COSH

Observation details

Found roosting with COSH. Sooty brown. Bill length and extensive silver flash on underwing consistent with SOSH and ruling out STSH, which we considered in light of the exceptional date for the eastern Atlantic.
