East again

Well Yesterday it was my Birthday, 21 again. So i went out in the pouring rain with the dog to Maryport to find myself a birthday rare, but its Cumbria so i failed again. Half a dozen Wheatear was it really.

 So today Keith an i headed East again for the anticipated big fall of Migrants. We did get the fall but only Common Stuff, Redstarts, Pied Flycatchers, nice Bramblings, our first Redwings of the autumn and a few other odds n sods. The best bird today however was this first winter Red-breasted Flycatcher. (shame about the branch) It poured it down all day so it was hard work birding and we both got wet through and the camera hardly came out the bag but for this.

A Yellow Wagtail was the last bird i saw as it flew over. Still best day of the last few trips out due to the amount of birds we got to look through.
