Hundreds flock to Beeley to spot rare Asian bird
A rare bird from Asia has been spotted in the Peak District.
Hundreds of birdwatchers have today descended upon Dukes Barn activity centre in Beeley to try and catch a glimpse of the Dusky thrush.
Centre manager Colin Higginson said: "It's in an orchard and it’s attracting so much attention.
"I’ve never seen anything like it!"
Experts believe the bird, which breeds in central Siberia, was blown to Britain by 'strong easterly winds'.
