What a Day!!!

What a day that was! Awesome!  My mate Ade caught a PGTips at Whitburn, and another couple of mates Tim and Jack scored with Lancy on North Ron check out Tims pics of this and a Little Bunting on the North Ron blog!!! What about me? Well, I didn't fare too badly either....

I had a meeting this morning over in Beverley so I thought it would be rude not to check out the coast afterwards so headed over to the north of Flamborough where it was visibly different to my visit last Sunday, i.e. there was some birds to look at! I didn't bother with the south side where there was Greenish Warbler, 5/6 Yellow-browed Warbler, Great Grey Shrike, Firecrest, Red-breasted Flycatcher...

Some of the highlights from where I went today included:

3 Red-breasted Flycatcher
2 Yellow-browed Warbler
1 Barred Warbler
2/3 Spotted Flycatcher
6+ Pied Flycatchers
c15 Redstart
5/6 Whinchat
12+ Wheatear
1 Common Whitethroat
3 Garden Warbler
2 Reed Warbler
4+ Blackcap
c12+ Willow Warbler
c5+ Chiffchaff
12+ Song Thrush
Decent numbers of Robin

I managed to get the following shots... I do like my new camera! Will be great when I get chance to read the instruction book so I know what setting is what!

  4. Very rare I think, check out the details here where there is a link to some images and a map from UK Moths website: would be worth getting photos of it and sending to local record centre/county moth recorder etc.
