17/11/22 More (?) Pallas’s!

Another 30 mph South Westerly morning so I headed to the sheltered end of the patch and quickly came across a Pallas’s warbler. Not in top wood however the bird was down in the Pines garden where I’d had one last friday. I took it to be ‘probably’ one of last weeks birds until it called: a flatter and shorter note, on occasion a dysllabic almost Humes like call though still obviously pallas’s-esque, quite different from anything heard last week.

The bird showed on and off for about an hour until I moved off and toured the valley seeing very little except the same Eurasian Treecreeper, 3 Firecrest and a Blackcap.

Ive been checking the harbour and Shakey Beach area in the afternoons. Nothing today but 2 Caspian Gulls last Friday which i forgot to mention. A striking 2nd winter patrolling the beach (pic) and a dainty first winter on the puddles.
