Rare on The Point

As i was staring into the Light House Garden a movement in the Sycamore caught my eye. Moments later a Treecreeper sp. came into view in a tree that has probably hosted more Short-toed Treecreepers than Eurasian. I called Dave Walker who quickly arrived and with better views it became apparent that it was an Eurasian Treecreeper still a rare bird for  The Point.
As we were watching the Creeper news of an unfamiliar Warbler in a nearby garden. Despite a couple of hours watching and a very few fleeting glimpses confirmed ID eluded us. Those that had slightly better views had thoughts of Paddyfield Warbler. I doubt we will ever know.   

 On the ARC Pit today no sign of the White-rumped Sandpiper but 212 Golden Plover, 1000+ Lapwing, 4 LRPs, 4 Ringed Plovers, 3 Knot, 9 Dunlin, 3 Common Sandpipers, 2 Green Sandpipers, a Black-necked Grebe, the Goosander and a Common Redstart. Also this Bill Tagged Pochard. The Glaucous Gull was still on the beach.
