Arrived back on Sat aft from a 3 day offshore survey, didn't see a great deal a few Black Terns, a Balearic and a couple of Yellow legged Gulls were the only things of any note. Being on a boat for 3 nights meant I was knackered and needed sleep so didn't get down to Spurn for the annual BBQ on Sat night, therefore it was quiet, well apart from Gristi and Pilsworth falling over several times and knocking out the lights!
Managed the afternoon down there today and saw the Barred warbler along Beacon lane, shit flight only views. Failed again to see the Marsh Warblers one of which was trapped today at Kew so I guess they're moving further from the nest site now which means I'll probably dip!
