A good start steadily went downhill

Out with Andy today and we started the day at East Hes to have a go for the Temminck's Stint we failed to find yesterday afternoon, as we scanned over the Top Lagoon a dog walker flushed a small wader from the other end and as it passed over our heads calling we were fairly convinced that was the bird, it flew to the western scrape and landed on a small Island, Andy soon got it in his scope and confirmed the ID, we hoped it would return to the Top Lagoon but it looked fairly settled in its new location so we decided to move round to get a closer look, when we eventually relocated it we were pleasantly surprised to find a second bird with it but unfortunately they had moved to the far bank and were just too distant for a photograph. With a Citrine Wagtail at Flamborough beckoning we decided to push on giving directions to Mr Leadley who was just arriving as we left. Upon arriving at Flamborough we soon found out that the Wagtail had gone missing but with nothing else to go for we staked it out most of the day on the offchance it might drop back in, it didn’t but mid afternoon we got news that an Icterine Warbler had been found at Old Fall Plantation, we shot off there but it was to be over an hour before we saw it and then it was the briefest of views before it disappeared again. A good start to the day but then a rather frustrating time at Flamborough.
