Major rarities turning up on bird tables

After a quiet autumn at the major localities the early winter has proven to be very productive at garden feeding stations in Norway.
On 27 November Norway's first Black-throated Accentor turned up in a garden in Rogaland, 6 days ago a Hume's Warbler flew into a window in Akershus, yesterday a (returning) male Pine Bunting turned up at a garden in Sør-Trondelag and today a picture of an odd "Reed Bunting" from two days ago in a birders garden in Ålesund turns out to be a Black-faced Bunting - see pictures on this link.

I'll have to pay more attention to the birds in MY garden!
