8 September 2010

A walk this evening with my Pete and my eldest son (who worked very well as a bush basher) produced a nice smattering of migrants.  The lovely male Red-backed Shrike which Pete found this morning was being mobbed by assorted tits at the start of the dunes from North Market Road, and the Totem Pole bushes held Whinchat, Redstart, a Black Redstart and a flypast Hobby.  A little further north there was a Pied Flycatcher and in the fading light a tantalisingly unclinched Barred Warbler.
