Another bird makes it onto my list taking me another step closer to 400. And with shetland booked in October I might just get there this year.
Eventually it gave itself up, to the relief of the torrent of newcomers who were swelling crowd.
A few pied flies and a handful of willow warblers were giving some folk false hope as I could here 'there it is' only to be mistaken by a willow warbler or a flycatching pied.
But most welcomed on to my list!
The black-browed albatross has been present on and off, but more regularly reliable since the end of June.
With its striking brow and huge black wings its brilliant to watch as it glides around the white cliffs.
Thanks to Mark Thomas who caught and rung the it, not only did he find the bird he als kind enough to release news, arrange access and keep the land onwe happy with a donation bucket.
Magnificent day with two mega awesome birds and some top quality company, too many folk to mention but nice to catch up with so many familiar faces.
