Ortolan Bunting, Spurn

Of all the places to choose for a days birding, we definitely made the right decision and headed off to Spurn this afternoon (after Karen had been to the hairdressers!). Plenty of redstarts and pied flycatchers on the pager and with the wind blowing in and clouds above, it all looked like it was going to be a good afternoon. We soon caught up with the locals, all heading to the new corner field as an ortolan bunting had been seen. BOOM.... a new UK bird for Karen taking her tally to 389. The bird showed brilliantly, one of those fantastic spurn days. Lets hope we get some more !
