In a tristis mood

Yesterdays Desert Wheatear was not seen today but a walk around the trees in North Valley in the morning made up for it and provided some of the best birdwatching that I can imagine.

One bush had a Yellow-browed Warbler, a Siberian Chiffchaff and a Lesser Whitethroat all on the same branch, at the same time! Visible migration was also good with loads of finches, larks, thrushes etc. going over. Then there was the odd wader, a Hen Harrier and a Ring Ouzel to boot.

Here are some pics of some of the best birds from the morning.

Lesser Whitethroat, I'm still trying to work this one out

We also visited South Castle Beach Cave today to look for seal pups and all we found was Mario Balotelli, who had a go at us!
