I used to see Twite regularly at Dibden Bay in the early 70s.
What's the "British Birds Register"? Twite isn't a BB rarity, it only needs to go to your local County Records Committee, if it is a county rarity.
Still get decent numbers of them wintering in Northumbs, had a flock of ~150 last month.
Thanks Brian & Michael.
The bird is a County rarety and it is the County Records committee that I reported it to. I believe there has been a reported sighting in Keyhaven too.
I should have said 2009 Report and not Register.
