We then moved back to the fishing boats in search of Caspian Gull but no luck there. There were hundreds of Great Crested Grebes and Guillemots on the sea along with fishing Gannets offshore. After this we went on to the trapping area where the Hume's Warbler was reported. After wading around for a while we went to the spot where Adam had it on the Sunday before. We waited but nothing so we moved around and then sods law says that it will turn up there. We heard it call but luckily Michael was still wading around in the area and located it. We then moved round and all picked up on it. A lifer for me and I believe for Harry too.
We popped in to the RSPB centre on our way to Scotney. A Pintail was the only new bird for the day. At Scotney we stopped at the first road in search of Long-Tailed Duck but couldn't pick it out. We then stopped at the entrance to the farm and a fellow birder kindly showed us the Long-Tailed Duck in his scope. After this brilliant bird we moved on to the next. We stopped at the bends and in amongst the Greylags there were 8 White-Fronted Geese and 2 Bean Geese. Bean goose being another lifer for me. On our way home we checked the marshes for Bewick Swans and there 40 together.
