It’s been another relatively slow two weeks. I’ve continued visiting Greenbury Point and other local places, which have been getting noticeably crowded. The weather has held, but migrants have been hard to find. Palm Warblers and Kinglets were the most numerous.
I’ve managed to get out almost every day, and I added Amberly and Sandy Point to the rota. Sandy Point has been largeley disappointing, but the Scoter is cool.
I may go to CBEC tomorrow, as I’ve heard there are some good finds available there.
