Grasshopper Warbler…

…with pale tail tips

A Mediterranean-esq day at Spurn. Headlined by plenty of spring migrants. For me Redstart, Grasshopper Warbler, Whitethroat and lots more Wheatears. I initially presumed yesterday’s Red-rumped Swallow flew by again for 2 lucky obs. However its clear so many birds pass Spurn that it’s just as likely a new bird, especially in the spring when birds just ‘keep going’. Off to the out for a meal with my family and quiz! Wind is in the SE right now. The best kind in the spring. Couple from this morning. Have a look at the tips of the tail feathers on this Grasshopper Warbler (photos just after 6am!). Plus a Nice bright Willow Warbler
