The Richards

With Chris C up for the weekend, Mark and I were hopeful for a good migrant haul today - especially after the good run if east coast records this past week. Alas it was not to be - the bluethroat at St Mary's appears to have gone, and with yellow-browed warbler aplenty at the second destination we didn't hang on to long.

Whitburn was marginally better - with 2 Richards Pipit frequenting the field opposite the coastal park and a single yellow-browed warbler. The un identified acro was unseen by us, and a fear of leaving before anything of significance had been trapped kept us on the site for a few hours.

Glorious sunshine and nice to catch up with CC.

Brown Shrikes "all over the place" might be an indicator of what's to come over the next few days....
