Following three national firsts during 26th May to 30th June 2010 with Oriental Pratincole, Pacific Swift and White-crowned Black Wheatear, today a singing male WHITE-THROATED SPARROW (Zonotrichia albicollis) -Denmark's second - was identified at Mølleparken, Skørping near Aalborgin Nordjylland, Denmark:

The bird has perhaps been around the Mølleparken gardens for 14 days,close to the big wood of Rold Skov. The only other WT Sparrow in Denmark was seen and heard in song at Kongelunden, Copenhagen on 23rd May 1976. The bird could stay around for many more days, and it seems to be an easy twitch from Germany or Sweden (via the ports of Göteborgor Varberg) (per DK500Club, Rolf Christensen)
