Plenty of birder coverage on the coast today. Donna Nook & Pyes were generally very quiet with nothing of note being caught in the nets north of the RAF base nor at Quad 3. I managed only a Tree Pipit, Whinchat & a Kingfisher. A Pied Fly had been seen at Pyes.
I dropped back onto Horseshoe to take in the Barred Warbler found by Dave Bradbeer & Steve Meek. The bird proved to be a typical Barred - very skulky! I saw the bird briefly perched but otherwise I only had several flight views. The bird never called. This was my 5th Barred & my first since the very late Covenham bird back in Dec 2004. 2 Marsh Harriers were also seen from Horseshoe & a Whimbrel heard.
