St Brides

Just as I was saying that I'd never seen anything interesting in the grounds of St Brides Castle, a Yellow-browed Warbler flicked into view.  With great and blue-tits, it was seen a couple of times mid-afternoon but was illusive with the trees catching the wind here. A Pied Flycatcher was a late-season surprise in the trees along the track to St Brides Farm.

The woodland opposite the Scout hut was full of birds enjoying the late sunshine; a large mixed flock including Nuthatch, 2 Treecreeper, chiffchaff, tits and finches.

Late afternoon at the Gann, Kingfisher, 2 Grey Plover, 18 Bar-tailed Godwit, 14 Dunlin (but no sign of Derek's Curlew Sand from earlier today)
