Greenish before work...

A text from IF got me moving towards St Mary's this morning - a greenish warbler was showing intermittently near the dipping pool. No photographs in my brief sortie, but  some good banter with the lads was had. News of barred warbler near the rifle butts had a few trekking north, but a text just received is negative. With the Bonaparte's gull seemingly settled at Whitburn Steele it looks like the pace is quickening...

Just got back from Italy so my re-adjustment to English needs some attentione! Did you see the warbler or just not capture it 'on film'? And where are the rifle butts (no jokes about the opposite end to the muzzle, please?

Yes, warbler seen but was very elusive. The butts are to the north of St Mary's - walk the coastal path to Hartly - raised mounds about 400m north of the "gut". Newbiggin GC mght be a better bet though...
