Getting quieter...

Yesterday morning we once again found ourselves on Holy Island, but the exciting birding of the last few days seemed to have come to an end. We spent the morning covering all of the main parts of the island, managing just a few Chiffchaffs and a Spotted Flycatcher, but the visit was saved when we got to the Snook car park and a first-summer Hobby flew past, giving us some fantastic views.

On the way back we called in at Druridge, where the Pectoral Sandpiper was still on the coal road flashes as well an adult summer Little Gull, a drake Garganey and the two Whooper Swans.
