Early morning at the Spurn

At some ungodly hour I found myself sat at The Warren hoping to see birds pass south. Unfortunately rather quiet... though the banter was rather good amongst the early risers! The best in the nets was a Garden Warbler while a Corn Bunting sat on the wires and a Barn Owl hunted over Clubley's. Point Dunes and Wire Dump were also particularly dull birdwise but a nice trundle round in the burning sun... so much better than Wednesday!

Small numbers of Swallow passed south, I counted c114 south by noon (obviously many more went thru after I left The Warren), a few House Martins, 4 Swift south, 1 Little Egret, and 181 Brent Geese of The Narrows the best of it. However, the Browntail caterpillars showed well!!!
