Proper fall at Spurn today.
Terrible weather (for birders) till around 11 when the torrential rain eased off. Then plenty of birds...details here
My ears pricked up with a shout of possible Parrot Crossbills but no more was heard.
I was balancing birding with work today and managed it OK.
Saw at least 3 G.S.Woodpeckers including this sodden individual feeding in Kilnsea Churchyard...
Goldcrests were everywhere. Such a cute species. No apologies for posting a series of albeit "soft focus" images! It WAS raining and VERY dull...
I must have seen double figure Blackcaps plus hundreds of thrushes including 3 Ring Ouzels. I didn't have time to "twitch" the Dusky Warbler or see it when it was trapped but no matter, I thoroughly enjoyed the time I had. I even popped back for an hour between runs mid-afternoon!
3 full days now so I'm out of the picture until my big break starting Thursday. I'm not going to mention the possibilty of a MEGA during this period. Whoops...I just have!
p.s. I wasn't going to post this and to be honest I'd forgotten Id took it. While I was sat in my car waiting for the rain to ease off this morning, a Woodcock nearly hit the windscreen and landed right next to the car! In my haste to get a pic I inadvertently had the camera on the wrong setting. Here's the picture anyway..
