A bit better

At last an improvement on the last few days ? Started frustratingly with an unidentified acro, then the first Marsh Warbler of the year which i suspect may have been around for a few days. A smart male Redstart, 2 Tree Pipits, Whitethroat and a Chiffchaff made up Brough's tally.

A text about a Canada Goose at Skaw had me venturing north, just incase it was of the small race. Arrived at Skaw to see Brian pointing in the plantation not at the Canada Goose but a Long-eared Owl which flew off alerting every Starling around Jon's house, no sooner had the owl gone the Canada Goose took to wing also. A Tree Pipit and 2 Willow Warblers were also noted.
