I spent the morning ringing.The majority of birds we caught were local youngsters,which included two Green Woodpeckers.About fifteen Willow Warblers though.were clearly not local and were on the move.
The nets were taken down around mid-day.After which I went and had a look at Restharrow scrape.

The bird I most wanted to see on this trip (its not seen every year),was Pallas`s Sandgrouse and I am pleased to say,we saw ten.
Another bird near to the top of my wish list,was,Himalayan Snowcock.Instead of the expected scope view of a bird high up on some ridge.We were treated to close views of a bird from the coach.
It proved to be a well organised trip,with great birds and company.
