More from the last couple of weeks to follow, but first a post dedicated to memorable double lightning strike last week. I've been fortunate to have had a fair amount of time to go birding of late, and I've made the most of it - plenty here on the doorstep in Filey, as well as the usual wanders a little further afield, and it was after (quiet) morning sessions at both Flamborough and Buckton that I returned to Carr Naze for an afternoon seawatch on 22nd.
That moment when two Greenish Warblers duet with each other.... and one breaks into song! Not what I expected on my #Filey rounds this a.m, but I'll take it 🤩@nybirdnews @BirdGuides @RareBirdAlertUK pic.twitter.com/v2X4eyLE5N— Mark James Pearson (@Markthebirder) August 23, 2021
Beforehand, then, two Greenish Warblers in ten years seemed like a pretty decent return here; 24 hours later and I'd doubled my tally. Autumn really is the greatest time of year.
