Coues’s Arctic Redpoll No.2

1st winter  – 9th March 1996

Recorded as 1st winter male. Wintersett Reservoir, West Yorkshire

Wing length: 73mm

Width of dark streak on longest undertail covert: 1.8mm

Length of unstreaked white rump: 12mm

Credit for trapping and photographing  goes to Pete Smith, the late Philip Harrison and John Gardner

This has pretty streaky looking flanks to me. If the rump were hidden I think I could easily overlook it.
