An exotic bird spotted roaming the Suffolk countryside has been caught on camera.
Tony Nelson took this photo from a footpath in a field next to the water tower north of Hollesley – the same location RSPB warden David Fairhurst saw the bird on Wednesday afternoon.
Mr Nelson said the bird is a rhea, not an ostrich, as originally thought.
The birds are native to South America but it remains unclear how one came to appear in a Suffolk field.
He took the photo last Tuesday and sent it to us after seeing the story online.
