this sums up the joy of birding as well as anything I've come across.

It's very evocative, but what's the bird? And is the one he writes about the one in the picture?

It's a Trumpeter Finch, and yes it is the one in the picture.

Its a rare bird for the UK and has just turned up in Norfolk, presumably discovered by Joe, so its arrival is widely known amongst the UK's few thousand birders.
