Warblers plus a Pipit or two

Out with Mark today and as he needed it for a lifer and I hadn't seen one for a while we went up to St Abbs Head just over the border in Scotland this morning for the Sardinian Warbler found there in the week, it was calling and showing regularly right from us getting there although typically they were only brief sightings before it dived back into cover, also a couple of Peregrines noisily announced their presence and several Yellow Browed Warblers were calling from the trees alongside Mire Loch. Next we decided to head back to Whitburn Coastal Park where a bit of stuff had been reported this morning, one or two things had swiftly disappeared but two or three Richard's Pipits were still showing well in the field opposite the entrance gate with a Whinchat. After a late lunch and with more goodies on offer at Hartlepool we carried on South and were soon watching a very showy Barred Warbler by the Memorial Gardens there but a stiff breeze had picked up this afternoon and it seemed all the other stuff had gone to ground. We finished off with a short seawatch but it didn’t produce anything apart from a load of Gulls following a couple of fishing boats back in.

two for the price of one
