Hip hip olais !

As the sat-nav inspired last post indicated, it was going to be a return trip to Buckton today and so it was ! A quick dash back through driving easterly lash with Steve Blain and the first bird that hit the net was the one we wanted - an Icterine Warbler in the cliff top dell! With 6 at Spurn today it was always going to be on the cards. The cliff top dell looked the part today and in a few years time when the willows thicken this is really going to pull in the birds. Other migrants included a Whinchat, Tree Pipit, 3 Spotted Flycatchers and late Fieldfares and Redwing. With more rain forecast overnight and the winds holding firmly in the east, tomorrow is set to be another rewarding day.
