Seaforth NR
After yesterdays lapland bunting I thought I would give hide C an hour first. After a heavy rain shower a lapland bunting appeared near the fence at 12.45. A few distant record shots and I alerted others but only Chris Gregson who was nearby managed to see it before it flew off high to the north as the sun came out. We initially assumed it was yesterdays bird but after reviewing photos of each lapland bunting it was clear that they were 2 different lapland buntings.
Another good bird today was a purple sandpiper on the causeway. 30 white wags,4 wheatears, 20 meadow pipits, 3 chiffchaffs and a willow warbler and a swallows and a few sand martins.
