Red-breasted Flycatcher (c) 2008 Tony Robinson - what the twitchers have been looking for all week!
Great Grey Shrike (c) 2008 Tony Robinson
Another excellent haul of species at this coastal site. The birds were a little harder to find today, but could be located with a little perserverance. Species seen today included: Great Grey Shrike, Red-backed Shrike, Redstart, Whinchat, Stonechat, Spotted Flycatcher, Knot, Little Egret, Redwing, Golden Plover, Grey Plover, Curlew. There were plenty of Meadow Pipits and Reed Buntings, whilst Goldcrests had definitely increased in number.
