Yellow Browed fest

There has been an unprecedented arrival of Yellow Browed Warblers on the east coast over the last few days with a record count of 130+ around the Flamborough Headland yesterday, I visited there and Bempton Cliffs today and there were still plenty around, I saw upwards of 20 birds between the two sites, nothing much with them though just a few Chiffchaffs and Redstarts plus a handful of Wheatears at Flamborough and Whinchats at Bempton, also of note was right old sparring match between an adult and immature Peregrine over the Headland they were making a right racket. 
9 or 10 were still around the Willows near the Golf Course

with 2-3 more in the Coastguards Cottages Gardens

plus Chiffchaffs

and Redstarts

and sparring Peregrines

Thornwick Pools were quiet just a few Dunlins

Whinchats at Bempton
