Yellow Browed

Took the day off today as the weather looked good for migrants and indeed there had already been a bit of stuff arriving along the East Coast over the last couple of days particularly Yellow Browed Warblers, I was joined by Mark and news of a fall of stuff on Carr Naze, Filey yesterday afternoon prompted us to start there this morning, it was very quiet though and seemingly everything had cleared out with the weather being fine and sunny which was surprising considering other stuff was still being reported from other East Coast sites. With nothing forthcoming after searching for a couple of hours we cut our losses and headed off to Flamborough calling in at Bempton on the way which proved a good move as there were five Yellow Browed Warblers present there and at least two of them were showing very well, after spending a bit of time with them we carried on down to the Old Fall Plantation at Flambrough where three more Yellow Brows, single Pied and Red Breasted Flycatchers plus Lesser Whitethroat and a few Chiffy's were present but as opposed to Bemptons showy birds they were all pretty elusive, the Autumns first Redwing also flew over. With nothing new reported from anywhere we ended the afternoon pottering around back at Bempton.

still plenty of Gannets around

plus other stuff flying past
