Couldn't resist the chance of a Life tick at Whitburn this morning so toddled off south (Crammy was doing something with goats in the Cheviots?!?!?! in search of the Richard's Pipit(s). Arrived to see a few scopes looking west over the road into the field, with reports of two of the three having flown off and the remaining one not seen for a while. Within five to ten minutes, they were spotted flying back in, so one tick, and then later, two birds in the same scope view. And a Whinchat too! Too far for even a half decent record shot, so here's some from Portugal last week.
