A few migrant thrushes in the dunes early morning along with two Blakcaps and a Great-spotted Woodpecker. Searching for Snow Buntings and Black Redstart along the shore proved to be un-rewarding and having been out from 08:00 o 12:00 it was frustrating to learn of a fly past Swift S? shortly after getting home for lunch. Well it seems even I can't see all the birds! Furthermore, my decision not to visit Druridge and instead return to Chev meant I missed my target. Thanks to IR for the news of 3 on the beach, hopefully they will still be on the patch today.
