      Spent 0830-1315 searching coastal sites for scarce or rare songbirds.

      In brackets are the various species I was hoping to find at each stop, with the stark reality (of what was the next best thing) underneath. The target fantasy birds are in latin for safety’s sake.

        3 goldcrests in Happy Mount Park but that is not unusual.

        (I recall being at Spurn when there was a goldcrest fall – nearly a thousand birds counted)
