While surfing the birding sites I noticed a very rare bird at Bempton RSPB in Yorkshire. So today I made the trip up there, quite a long way to go as it's a round trip of 250 miles but we saw the rare bird I wanted to see. It's the fourth UK record of a Eastern Crowned Warbler. What a fantastic bird you can easily tell it apart from other warblers.

 

Also picked out a Yellow Browed Warblers, a Greenish Warbler, and loads of Goldcrests. While walking along the coast path we also saw a Bluethroat.

 

All in all a great day out with two new ticks.

 

Total now is 296 birds.

The Albatross was only there for a fly by less then a minute so you had to be lucky to see it.

 

Was spotted at Cley today so making it's way down the East coast.
