Spurn - 6th October 2005.

This Yellow-browed Warbler ( a 1stw, male on winglength) was one of 5 ringed out of a reported 8 present at the point alone. The day total for the Spurn/Kilnsea/Sammys area was a phenomenal 20 !

Interesting bird of the day was this Yellow Wagtail of one of the eastern races, present in a field by the road on the north side of Kinsea.

Over an hour was spent photographing this awesome little Jack Snipe that was feeding outside the Canal Scrape Hide, in company with a common Snipe. A second Jack Snipe was also visible.
