Back out after a long weekend with my band up north, which included a stopover (and a 'homecoming' show!) at my old manor, Flamborough; sadly not timed to coincide with the recent Brown Flycatcher (found by an still justifiably ecstatic friend of mine, who celebrated in style at the show - stand up RB), but managed to steal a couple of hours in the field and relocate a Blyth's Reed Warbler in the bay, and a cracking male Red Backed Shrike at Thornwick.

Still minus internet after moving house this week, but recent photos will appear on this page within the next few days.
