I saw the most amazing looking bird in my garden this morning and it flew into the woods behind our house.(Bromham Beds.) Have looked through all the RSPB pictures and can't find it.
It looks very much like a puffin, the size of a pigeon with a light yellow chest and big white cheeks with a bit of grey on top and a puffin type beak.
Could this bird have been blown off course with all the wintery weather we've been having as I don't think it's native.
Hope someone can identify and sorry no time for photo it was in & out in a flash, looking forward to hearing fan answer. 9th Feb. 2009
