Barred Warbler!

A quieter morning around The Point, though still a few each of Siskins, Redpolls, Goldfinches, Chaffinches, Linnets, Bramblings and 4 Swallows over. A single Fieldfare in The Desert, 2 Redwing and 2 Song Thrushes flushed from the Broom, 3 Mistle Thrushes and a Ring Ouzel in The Moat along with a number of Goldcrests, Chiffchaffs and 2 Firecrests. 
The highlight of the day was Barred Warbler (216) which found its way into a mist net in the trapping area.

A visit to Galloways this afternoon was again disappointing, no Owls, just a couple of Stonechats.
The Rough-legged Buzzard is still showing on and off at Scotney though usually distant.
With the number of Short-eared Owls around, I spent the late afternoon early evening at home scanning the fields opposite Plodland. No Owls were seen, however 2 Ravens flew over, 2 Marsh Harriers were hunting the ditches, 3 Little Egrets flew over along with 100s of corvids going to roost.
