Managed to get out on Saturday afternoon but it was hard work around the patch. Fortunately Reg had been out earlier and nailed a few birds to some posts for me...

A fine YBW was quickly followed by a goldcrest and an elusive Barred warbler in the same small plantation was swiftly followed by a blackcap. Four patch birds in the space of a few minutes.

A couple of lapland bunts flying over were much appreciated.

Best bird for the patch were three bar-wits from a seawatch this morning. Could be a patch tick but not sure.

Patch list now stands at 81.38% but a quick 'future look' doesn't bode well with a predicted end of year tally around the 95%.
