Rare bird sighted for 1st time in 22 years ! Crowd gathers! Bird promptly killed


LINK

quote:

There had been only eight recorded sightings of the white-throated needletail in the UK since 1846. So when one popped up again on British shores this week, twitchers were understandably excited.

A group of 40 enthusiasts dashed to the Hebrides to catch a glimpse of the brown, black and blue bird, which breeds in Asia and winters in Australasia.

But instead of being treated to a wildlife spectacle they were left with a horror show when it flew into a wind turbine and was killed.

Could this be why they've only seen 8 in the UK? Not exactly neighboring locales

Look at the thread below the article.
Somebody named "Speedy01" is trolling the Limeys...
Is that our Speedy ?

thread is misleading. Bird hasn't been sighted in the UK in 22 years.. the bird itself can be sighted at other places

Space constraints.

Good luck getting the sand out your vag.

fricking green energy crowd. Wind turbines kill thousands of birds- protected and unprotected species- and no one says shite about it. If that bird would have died anywhere near an oil refinery or drilling rig you'd never hear the end of it.
