30th May - Last Knockings?

All seemed relatively quiet yesterday with almost all the birds encountered common breeding species. No sign of the Greenish Warbler from yesterday morning, luckily I've had two before at Newbiggin as I wouldn't want it as a full fat tick on the one brief snatch of song I heard before it went forever quiet (not my find and other obs had views, song and call).

Another flycatcher today, much more co-operative than the last one, added Spotted Flycatcher to the patch year list. Aside from that it was all Whitethroats, Linnets and a single Mallard in the tipping marsh.
