flyer's moon

Very bright and clear last night so it was no great surprise that there was no sign of the swainson's thrush this morning in dirk bay,although 2 yellow browed warblers were still around. Elsewhere there were 2 med gulls at long strand (ad w & 1st w), 1 wheatear, 1 yellowhammer and 1 golden plover over, a new firecrest and yellow browed warbler at shite lane, with several goldcrests, and a new yellow browed warbler at long strand.

The balloon went up again this afternoon, in the form of a white throated sparrow on Cape, so we all had to go twitching again. The bird was eventually pinned down and good views were had by all - result!
