Ringing with Janet this morning again, a steady morning, nothing as exciting as an rb fly, but some nice birds including balckcap, siskins, gt spotted woodpecker, goldcrests and song thrush as well as the regulars.
Quite a few skeens of pink-footers going over.
On the way home, I couldn't resist twitching a very obliging grey phal at Cressswell Pond, the bird was only 3m from the road, I took this wothout the scope, again the guys with the flash cameras must have got some stunners.
A quick dodge down to Dru late afternoon, I met Brian Bulloughs, who pointed me in the direction of a migrant hawker dragonfly, I am just getting into dragonflies so this was nice to see on the patch. The black tern, pec sand, ruff and kingfisher were all still there, and the ross's goose, of unknown origin, which has been hanging around E. Chev flew over with a skeen of pink-footers. There was 6+ red-throated divers offshore and a harbour porpoise.
