Nash point yesterday.

   Yellowhammer.
   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.
