203. Nashville Warbler
204. Connecticut Warbler
205. Lincoln's Sparrow

303. Red-flanked Bluetail
304. Dusky Warbler
305. Black Guillemot

A fun morning today on Björn. Lots of common migrants today, plus the fantastic Bluetail and the very skulky Dusky Warbler. The Bluetail was a Swedish tick and the Warbler a world tick.

October is the best month to find rails around here. With that in mind, I put on the rubber boots and waded through a wet marshy area. I got lucky and flushed one from underfoot.

207. Sora

As I said earlier. I was at Spurn but on the Friday news of a Rock Thrush in South Wales made me think twice about staying or going for the bird. I stayed but it was obvious by the end of the day how relatively quiet the Spurn area was.

I was watching my second Rosy Starling of the year on Saturday morning. This one at Easington when I thought sod it, I'm going for the Thrush.

I stopped near Birmingham for something to eat and that hour I stopped made me miss the bird by ten minutes as I got to where the bird had been at 15.25 and the bird flew at 15.15. I persevered but no luck so I stayed there overnight in my Motorhome.

Thankfully after about a two hour search today the bird was re-found and I got superb, albeit distant views, of the bird.

On the way home I called by the Cannop Ponds in the Forest of Dean for the resident Mandarin duck.

222. Rock Thrush
223. Mandarin Duck
