Wryneck at Whitburn CP today. Couple of very dodgy shots of it. Hopefully if it was caught and ringed there will be some better pics of the bird. Also whinchat showing well on the Leas.

Unfortunately it didn't do the decent thing and fly into a net!

Not a bad little morning in the coastal park today with a juvenile Red Backed Shrike and a Greenish Warbler. But possibly the best bird of the day was a Kingfisher that we trapped and ringed from the main mound!

It turns out the Greenish Warbler in the coastal park is actually an Arctic Warbler, an even rarer species!
