Chatting & Spotting

Here are a few images from yesterdays afternoon potter with some fall migrants. The weather here in the north-east has settled somewhat and only a few of the migrants are being reported today - it may be a while before conditions return to favourble. 

The whinchat pictured to the above and below is the same individual - a mobile bird at Seaton Sluices' "Rocky Island". 

The spotted flycatcher presented below was one of two birds at St Mary's - actively feeding at the top of the wetland. I wasn't quick enough to capture the glorious male redstart that was also present. Forgot to mention yesterday that in addition to the birds listed, there was also a single tree pipit over too.
