Flamborough Bluethroat.. and fingers

Bluethroat (Red spot), Flamborough

We’re up with Neil, in Flamborough, for a couple of days, prior to our week away with Bob & Sue in Hungary. Usually when we come up here it’s cold and there are very few birds. Yesterday it was different – still cold BUT with a few interesting birds! In the morning we had a drive around the eastern edge of the North Yorks National Park, with Dipper, Garden Warbler and Corn Bunting being the highlights. We returned to Flamborough to discovered that a Bluethroat had been found on ‘the Cape’. In a brisk northerly wind the bird was not particularly cooperative, but we did manage to locate it a couple of times and get the odd grab-shot. Also of note were a pair of Dotterel, which flew away just as I was hunkering down in the hedge to take a shot, and a lone Whinchat.

All being well I should be bringing you the occasional blog from the Hortobágy over the coming days.
