my best ever day birding
Over the past 22 years birding, this day is by far the best I have ever had. I should have been at school but wasnt ! The rarity value of the birds at the time to a youngster who has just discovered train travel was just too much..
The highlight was the Booted Warbler at Bempton which was found whilst I was at Filey, I managed to hitch a lift with a birder at Filey - who turned out to be Chris Mills - a now friend based in Norfolk - he even kindly took me home, just in time for school to finish !
This RB Fly was in the same garden as a Barred Warbler near the lighthouse at Flamborough - both ticks !
