Red bishop, Purbeck garden, © Liz Dale

No sightings to report from today, but an interesting escape in a Purbeck garden. It's a weaver, and looks like red bishop sp.

UPDATE: David Leadbetter has written to say: "I think from the photographs that the bishop species in the Purbeck garden is likely to be Black-winged Red Bishop, which is widespread in parts of Africa. It's quite a stunning bird!"
