No luck with the Pallas's warbler, but 2 Firecrests and a Chiffchaff on the terrace lunchtime today. Richard E had also had a brief look. The cameraman who'd reported it to Richard came by. He'd seen it, yesterday, on the path beside the lake, below the terrace, in a willow laden with catkins SR 97802 96185 and also on the ivy along the terrace wall in the company of a Firecrest. Just Goldcrest and tits in the willow during the time I was there. Also Goshawk, Sparrowhawk, Buzzard and 4 Peregrines over the lake during the brief spell of sunshine. Hopefully the cameraman got some good footage for the forth coming Springwatch.
