Spurn Point

Me and Andy went over to Spurn today hoping for some early migrants, started at Sammy's but it was very quiet the only birds of note were a Little Egret over and a Barn Owl near the Shrike bushes, we moved on to the Crown and Anchor car park where yesterdays Firecrest had been seen again this morning but even though we put in a cosiderable amount of time it never showed again, we walked the Triangle where we had a couple of White Wagtails by Canal scrape and a female Merlin sat on a post then returned to Sammy's and eventually caught up with a couple of Wheatears. There being nothing else on offer we decided to head back to the LDV, there was still a good selection of waterfowl at North Duffield Carrs although the water is fast receding, ended up at Skipwith where the Great Grey Shrike was sat atop a distant Holly bush, we took a walk along the path up the side of the field to see if we could get a bit closer but it was looking into the light, a good number of Yellowhammers around though looking nice in the evening sunlight.
