Winterton: one last bash!

A day at Winterton with Martin proved great fun, with the long-staying Red-backed Shrike still showing well and a terrific fall of Whinchats: we counted at least 30.

Other birds included Wheatear, Stonechat, Blackcap and a curiously long tailed Buzzard: I'm tempted to say Honey...

We also thought we'd caught a glimpse of a Barred Warbler, but it just wouldn't reveal itself....

Any idea about the white-breasted warbler? It has a rufous cap like a female Blackcap, but this doesn't extend below its eye. Could it be a 'funny' Lesser Whitethroat?

Best of all, we both had close views of a Common Hawker - miles from the North Pool and too quick for photography! It passed between the two of us and kept going!
