The Arctic

Out with Mark and Andy  today and the obvious choice was Flamborough again, this time starting down at Old Fall Plantation where an Arctic Warbler found yesterday was still present this morning, for once we timed it just right as within five mins of getting there the bird popped out and showed really well, there being nothing else to go for we stuck with it for the morning and although it went missing for long periods we got a couple more decent views, there was also a few of the more common migrants in the area including Lesser Whitethroat and Spotted Flycatcher plus a Marsh Harrier went over. Late morning we went off to the Headland for a seawatch, we weren’t really expecting much and it was just as well because there wasn’t, we had a bit of lunch and as it was a nice afternoon we thought we'd try Wykeham, fairly quiet though, several common Buzzards and a couple of Sparrowhawks entertained but it looks like the Honey's have probably departed now, several small flocks of Crossbill also went over.

smart little bird, only my third one

seawatching was so good I took to photographing Pied Wags
