After celebrating our daughter’s 21st the night before the last thing you need is to go off “twitching”. After a message from Mark G saying,  “Killder in Lancashire”.Could only raise Steve B and I picked him up in double quick time as I knew he had’nt seen this species in this country before.They only seem to occur when I have a hangover (New Year’s Day on Anglesey) We reached Longridge and after a hurried bit of parking,  had five minutes with the bird before it took flight.Then apart from a brief appearance the day after was gone forever.It could have been the same bird as seen by the same finder in Ireland and Lancashire.What are the chances of that happening?
