Set off for St Abbs this morning at 6am for the Sardinian Warbler, i arrived at 7:30am and had the bird in the bag at 7:45am :) got some decent views and a few shots of the bird, it was also singing and calling on and off, Great bird. Other birds in the area were 3 Yellow-browed warblers and a flyover Black redstart, nothing else about so decided to head back down A1 for the Richard's pipits at Whitburn, 1 bird was in the mowed field which was showing on and off at the other side of the field and out of range for a photo :( not to worry though as it was another year tick taking my total for the year to 261 :0 shortly after i left the second bird showed before both flew off west. The new van performed well, a trip from Winlaton mill to Whitburn via St Abbs and back cost only £21 :) £60+ in the land rover :( bring on the next twitch at that price!!! lol.
