Eurasian Wryneck (record shot)
A rarity for these parts which my team spotted at the very enjoyable Bangalore Bird Race yesterday and was selected as Bird of the Day ! I was told by Dr Subramanian that this is only the 3rd recorded sighting of this bird in Bangalore since records began (it usually winters in Northern India). Thanks to all the organisers (and my team!) for such a great day out!

Congratulations! This was a super sighting. Was it in the evening?

Thanks Kartik for your comments :-) - it was just after 8 o'Álock in the morning - though my camera setting was left on ISO800 by mistaker from earlier!

Hi James, Thanks for sharing the picture. Hope I get to see this bird in this life.

Great sighting and good picture!

But I want to ask...if, let's say, greenhorns like me had made such a sighting, would it have been accepted without photographic documentation? What are the rules regarding this at the Bird Race?
