Borin' Afternoon

Spent an hour this afternoon up and down the path near the sentry box at The Carrs looking for Garden Warbler (Sylvia borin, hence the superb title to this page!).  Cold and windy conditions kept all but the hardiest warblers quiet and hidden, except Willows.  Before the drive to Mayfair Cottage, managed to bag this chap:

The horse field to the left before the box had Mistle Thrush, Fieldfare (tell them the flight ban's over), Swallow and House Martin.  The field to the right beyond the box had half a dozen Swift above it.

Hardly a Stone Curlew, but a pleasant time had by all, including Mrs L who was smitten by the goats!
