Hard Going at Spurn

Still on Holiday this week and as a few bits and bops remained on the East Coast I thought I'd nip down to Spurn today, Mark and Andy who have had the last three days off as well, joined me even though they had been down yesterday. I had a bit of running around to do this morning so it was a late start, we got to Spurn after noon and went straight for the Greenish Warbler that was still present near the Riverside Hotel, it had shown very well yesterday for Mark and Andy but today was different again, it was cool and cloudy with a stiff breeze and the bird just wouldn’t come out into the open, saw it well enough to clinch the ID but didn’t get the hoped for photo’s. Mid afternoon we took a break from it and went down to the Crown and Anchor car park where I had brief views of a Red Breasted Flycatcher and Yellow Browed Warbler then with news of a Barred Warbler by the Canal we shot off there but despite a good stomp around we only managed to find Redstarts and Lesser Whitethroats. Late afternoon we returned to the Greenish Warbler but it still remained very elusive and as the light started to go we gave up on it, or rather I did Andy and Mark had already got pics of it yesterday, there were also four Pale Bellied Brents and a couple of Little Egrets on the Humber.
