I managed a quick hour on the patch yesterday afternoon. After the excitement of the lesser yellowlegs, I resumed my almost obsessive searching in the bushes for a decent phyll warbler. Two sizeable tit flocks with two chiffchaff and three goldcrest in tow were located. These flocks seem to move quicker as the weather gets colder and it was hard work keeping up with them. 5 pied wags and 2 grey wags were at the sewerage works.
I made a quick visit to the flood where the lesser yellowlegs was feeding with 8 black tailed godwits and a similar number of redshank. This really is a fantastic bird and well worth a twitch.
