Pacific Golden Plover

 A family trip to Newcastle provided the excuse to divert to Boulmer in Northumberland on the way home where I had excellent views of a summer plumage Pacific Golden Plover







Icterine Warbler and Collared Flycatcher

 Lovely day birding at Spurn in warm sunshine. Finally got good views of an Icky after probably seeing one briefly at Spurn a few years ago. Also seen were the fist winter Collared Flycatcher that had been trapped and ringed a couple of days before. Also present were a Red backed Shrike and a probable brief view of Barred Warbler

Update! DNA analysis confirmed the flycatcher was in fact a Pied Flycatcher...
