After the twitch

I hope me Bloody cranesbills are ok

I'm back online again after trouble with the internet which stopped me from accessing any blogs. I was at Hadston dunes to see the hippo which many birders are happy to tick as a Syke's warbler. I watched it well on Sunday evening and I spent a few hours there on Monday but the views were brief but the light was better. I'm no expert and I would be very happy for a Booted warbler to turn up there but many observers have a lot of experience with this species and there was a steady stream of birders from other regions calling in to see it. It was good to catch up with some old faces and enjoy the chat as these days most of my wildlife watching is done alone. I only hope the flowers of the dunes haven't been totally trampled. No pics of the bird but there are plenty of good photos around.

That line tickled me, Nigel.
