Another missed Pallas's at Dunge

 Spent the best part of the morning at the Willow Trail the drizzle in the  trying to photograph a very grey looking Chiffchaff but failed miserably as it always stayed deep in the bushes. A Firecrest was fairly obliging as were the numerous Goldcrests though the dark overcast conditions didn't lend it self to photography. 60+ Redpolls and 15 Siskins flew over. On the pit the Goldeneye had increased to 5 and another Ruddy Duck has appeared(No doubt soon to be shot by DEFRA). A Pallas's Warbler in the trapping area completetely eluded me along with most other birders (Thats 3 i've missed now) But there was at least 3 more Firecrests there and another 50+  Redpolls over also 6 Redwing and 2 Black Redstarts by the railway Station.
