Siberian Accentor: Probably the biggest bird of the year a 2nd for Britain but only after the 1st record being found a week ago in Shetland.
Found by Lance Degnan, congratulations!
Big thumbs up and thanks to the lads from Spurn who did a brilliant job of organising viewing of the bird.
Patrick and I took a few goes on the merry-go-round and queued up several times to view the bird and each time got increasingly better views of this super gorgeous little bird!
Shore Lark: Once we had our fill of the sib acc and had enough of the crowds, we headed down to the Bulebell Carpark to see one of my favourite birds, the Shore Lark.
Dusky Warbler: There are times when Spurn is really good and this was definitely one of these times!
As we left the Shore Lark we decided to check out Langham Lane and find something decent.
We turned around and with a hurried pace made it in time for the showing and release.
Its far from a little brown job, a very distinct bird with unstreaked brown back and buff underparts and a prominent whitish supercilium.
Overall a brilliant day with great company, excellent birds and plenty of friendly familiar faces, many from the North West.
