Lesser Whitethroat, GND and Firecrest

Most of the day spent slogging the patch again today with good friend Andy S. An early start with some vis mig on the cliffs. Regular small flocks of Linnet, Meadow Pipit, Siskin, Goldfinch, Chaffinch, Pied Wagtail and the odd Bullfinch, but still no hoped for Hawfinch! Though a high flying Great Northern Diver was my first of the autumn.
A walk round the top fields produced a late Lesser Whitethroat thanks to Andy. Just a standard looking Sylvia c. curruca and not anything from further east sadly!  
Also at least 3 Firecrest today.
