Things started to quieten down and so we decided to pay a visit to Holme dunes to see if we could catch up with the recently arrived Red-breasted Flycatcher, a 'lifer' for me and also to see the long-staying juvenile Barred Warbler (not a lifer, but a good bird nonetheless). The Flycatcher was a bit of a tease, staying deep in cover before flying over the heads of the assembled crowd and sitting in a Sycamore tree, where it proceeded to give us glimpses of itself. Not brilliant, but a life tick for me, two in one day!
The Barred Warbler was a lot easier to spot, feeding constantly in an Elder bush and although distant, gave good views.
