Nash point yesterday.
I visited Nash point yesterday, hoping to see a Lapland bunting reported the previous day.
No sign of the bunting, just Reed buntings and a Yellowhammer amongst the Skylark flock.
On the way back through the lighthouse grounds I stopped to photograph a Stonechat on the
stone wall and noticed Pipit activity in the grassy field behind it. On scanning the field, a
larger, paler pipit was behind the Meadow pipit flock. It looked good for Richards pipit and
ID was confirmed when it flew and uttered it's diagnostic call. A few others managed to see
it but it was not seen after 2pm and was not present today.
