Yesterday afternoon, I took a long walk around Manchester to get acquainted with my surroundings. At one point, I got to this gate, in Manchester Chinatown
Chinatown: the tree was on the left of that gate
There was quite a crowd there, everyone with cameras with huge lenses, or binoculars. I asked several people what it was all about, but either they wouldn’t tell or they didn’t know.
What on earth were they looking at?
See, saying that I was there is slightly misleading. 😉
I was there all right, but I didn’t see anything, although I did walk around that tree.
This evening I got the solution on the local news. It was all about a rare bird. Here’s what BBC News says about it
Birdwatchers have flocked to Manchester’s Chinatown in the hope of catching a glimpse of a rare bird.
The Eastern Olivacious Warbler has been spotted in the trees in the heart of Chinatown, just off George Street, in the city centre.
