Pied Flycatcher, Carr Naze (Mark Pearson)

Less encouraging conditions nevertheless provided a few notables today, the best of which was a Little Stint┬ásouth past the Brigg (in the company of a Grey Plover and a Dunlin) this afternoon (MJP), the third this year of a less than annual species locally. The Temminck’s Stint and Wood Sandpiper remained at East Lea (with the former making a brief visit to the Dams), while a late arrival on Carr Naze in the evening sunshine consisted of two Pied Flycatchers and a Whinchat.
