31st May 2014

Decided to head down to Newport wetlands,Gwent today with Archie & Jules for the singing Savi's Warbler,on arrival we quickly heard the bird & had brief views before it sat up for a few minutes reeling away unfortunately deep in the reeds but still a good addition to the Year list after an hr or so we decided to head of to Devon for the Ross's Gull (1st summer) only my 2nd ever which showed well in the scope but not worth troubling my camera for then the pager went into meltdown Short-toed Eagle in Dorset showing well!! It was decided we would at least try for it & sure enough by 7pm we were watching it along with a good crowd!! No photos again as the bird was at distance but gave brilliant views in the scope (Only a 3rd for Britain) Needless to say a British tick for the 3 of us a fantastic day but knackering after 19+ hrs on the rd!!
