Patch still producing the goods

Spent a couple of hours on the patch this morning, started well with a new Stonechat present and alot more Fieldfare with at least twenty birds moving through, got even better when last weeks Lapland Bunting flew around calling and then landed some 150yds in front of me, luckily Dave Mo had just arrived on site and we both had brief views of the bird before it flew around out of view.

no prizes for digiscoped efforts today I'm afraid!!

Then scanning the bay we pick up another good London bird in the shape of a female Common Scoter.

Half a dozen curlew on the foreshore and the usual flock of Linnet were seen and both Cetti's Warbler and Water Rail heard.
