Tales of travel and birds from Cheshire to Shetland and back, with a bit of other stuff in between.

Back on patch and thankfully it seems i haven't missed anything. A bright sunny day with a moderate southerly breeze. A Lesser Whitethroat was eluding good views and a Common Sandpiper was an expected patch year tick at the Houb.
After the high excitement of Saturdays Wood Sandpiper i managed another unexpected patch year tick with a Grasshopper Warbler skulking around one the gardens.
And with that there ended today's birds. Conditions seem ideal for Red-backed Shrike , Bluethroat and Icterine Warbler so that's the kiss of death on that then!
