The last few days have been fairly productive though I've still a few holes in the year list, some despite being relatively regular are scarce at this young site, namely: Lesser Whitethroat (only one last year), Grasshopper Warbler (no records since 2011), Sedge Warbler (very rare here, just 2 records). A nice surprise this morning though was a partial summer plumage Spotted Redshank an unexpected patch tick and my first new species this year.
|Is there a finer looking spring than a male Whinchat? Though this one was a bit drab compared to the cracking male earlier in the week.|
|However, any male form of Yellow Wag' is a worthy contender|
|Hopefully a few more of these before the spring is out.|
|Another good year so far with double figures most days over the last week. No Greenland types yet though.|
