Only about 70 Pallas’s warblers are spotted in the UK each year - and one has just been seen in a pub garden in Norfolk.
It's one of the smallest of all British birds, just nine centimetres long and weighing seven grams, but it can fly several thousand miles from the forests of northern Russia all the way to Britain.
Bird spotter Robin Hunt said: “I am no twitcher, but I thought some of your readers would be interested to know that myself and three others saw one of these in the garden of the Fishing Boat in East Runton last Saturday, April 13.
“It's a beautiful little bird that has flown here from Siberia. Only about 70 are seen every year in the UK.”
Mr Hunt said they tried to take a photograph of the bird, but “it kept hopping around the trees”.
