New YBW on Patch

Yesterday, after the excitement of Spurn and more importantly overnight heavy rain and I was keen to get back out on the patch! Highlights were 2 Firecrest on the West Cliffs footpath and best of all a new Yellow-browed Warbler on the east side of the Otter. It seemed like it was fresh in zooming around and staying at the very tops of the mature Sycamores looking around before disappearing.
An afternoon look at the Otter produced a colour-ringed Lesser Black-backed Gull from the Channel Islands. During the evening, the top fields produced 2 Wheatears, 70+ each of Linnet and Skylark.
