Well, well, well, some birds have arrived. Firecrests mostly. None for yours truly I'm afraid as the day was spent propping up the economy...

Gary rang me from Newton to say he had found 4 of the bobby dazzlers on his patch. 4! Firecrests aren't that common up here, its not Dungeness you know. After coming out of a lengthy retirement, 'The Blogger formerly known as The Grocer' got in on the act too with one at Newbiggin plus a Lap Bunt ;)

So, inspired by these successes, I might turn in late for work tomorrow, weather permitting, and check some local bushes...

Thursday pm or Friday might be the best after the foul weather dries up...Guess where I'll be. I'm not bitter. Not much.

Thanks for letting us know about the arrival of the Firecrests, Stewart. Might take a couple of days for one to make it further inland.
I will be keeping my ears & eyes open for one, though.

And the Richard's that got away, JGS is heading that way tomorrow and I'm betting he re-finds it.
