TRUMPETER FINCH still present

The exceptionally bright male TRUMPETER FINCH is still present today, feeding on weeds on the seaward side of the shingle bank, between 200 yards and half a mile east of the north end of Cley NWT East Bank. The bird shows very well indeed and is best observed from the beach itself, looking up towards the ridge.

Nearby, the long-staying male RED-BACKED SHRIKE is still feeding from the isolated bushes and gorse clumps immediately SSW of Cley Coastguards car park but there has been no sign today of either the singing male THRUSH NIGHTINGALE at Walsey Hills or the male MARSH WARBLER at the east end of Gramborough Hill, Salthouse.

In East Kent, the first-summer male RED-FOOTED FALCON remains at Dungeness RSPB (in the vicinity of Christmas Dell hide), whilst the Tring Reservoirs (Herts) young male can still be found hawking for insects at Wilstone Reservoir. A new arrival - another first-summer male - is at Ouse Fen near Over (Cambs), accessed from Fen Road.

A singing male MARSH WARBLER is at Minsmere RSPB reserve today, singing from the Sluice Bushes

In Northern Scotland, the GREAT WHITE EGRET is again on the Savoch Low Grounds at the Loch of Strathbeg RSPB reserve (Aberdeenshire) (with the drake KING EIDER nearby on the Ythan Estuary), whilst on Orkney last night, the long-staying RED-RUMPED SWALLOW was still around and a cracking male RUSTIC BUNTING was on Papa Westray for its second day (at Backiskaill)
