Flamborough to North Cave

I headed off to Flamborough this morning starting at Thornwick Pools where yesterdays juv Curlew Sandpiper was still present along with half a dozen Dunlins, spent around an hour there in case something else dropped in but it didn’t so after a brief look over a quiet sea at North Landing I went on to Old Fall, bumping into a couple of locals they informed me the Greenish Warbler from mid-week had been seen again so once again I invested a lot of time trying to find it but to no avail just a Wheatear, a Pied Flycatcher, a Treecreeper and several Willow Warblers seen. Part two of the plan today was to go to North Cave Wetlands in the afternoon for the Spotted Crake, it had apparently been showing well today but as I got to the viewing area at the Reedbed Lake I was informed it had gone back into the reeds some 15mins previous, it was to be almost 2 hours before it reappeared although when it did it showed well if a little distant.
