A slight distraction this evening whilst watching Spain dismantle Chile, was a text from Dr Marshall of a probable Marsh Warbler singing in the plantation up at Skaw. A quick call to ask if it was worthy of putting up the mist net and i was up there. Fortunately (for me) John Laurie was there so helped set up, once ready the acro didn't need much persuasion flying into the net almost instantly. I passed comment that the last day of SW'rly winds we had Red-backed Shrike, maybe they are the way forward this year? I also tried for a sneaky patch year tick but it was released at Skaw.
