Not exactly hopping

After all the rain with strong Easterlies over the last couple of days thought it would be pretty good on the East Coast today so along with Mark and Andy headed over to Filey this morning, it was hard going though and frustratingly most stuff dived into deep cover never to be seen again, Barred and Greenish Warblers and Red Breasted Flycatcher were reported but we never managed to connect with any of them. In the afternoon we decided to try our luck at Flamborough, a few things had been reported from Old Fall, as we made our way to the Plantation there was a lot more activity than we'd seen at Filey and although nothing particularly posed we got reasonable views of several Redstarts, Brambling, Pied and Red Breasted Flycatchers plus Yellow Browed and Wood Warblers. Late afternoon we returned to Filey after hearing the Greenish Warbler had given itself up and had been showing well but it had gone to ground again by the time we got there, finished off at the Dams but not a lot happening there. A few good birds seen but we did really expect it to be better than it was.
still a good number of Hirundines about

RB Fly just wouldn't keep still
