Rare bird now even rarer

The white-throated needletail made a rare appearance this week. Then it was quickly killed by a wind turbine in England.
The Daily Mail reported:

There had been only eight recorded sightings of the white-throated needletail in the UK since 1846. So when one popped up again on British shores this week, twitchers were understandably excited.

A group of 40 enthusiasts dashed to the Hebrides to catch a glimpse of the brown, black and blue bird, which breeds in Asia and winters in Australasia.

But instead of being treated to a wildlife spectacle they were left with a horror show when it flew into a wind turbine and was killed.

Here’s video of the bird before its demise.
