4.5.19 Wood Warbler and Blue headed Wagtail

I’ve found it hard to find motivation these past 7 days with not a lot of return on the morning efforts. Although the discovery of an excellent Wood Warbler in Belle Tout Wood was a welcome sight and sound.

Found by Nick Pope, my first since two in April 2017, although there is usually 1 or 2 annually.

On the evening of the 3rd of May I came across what appeared to be the second Blue headed Wagtail in 6 days at West Rise, being slightly different from the individual present on the 28th April. I saw it incredibly poorly the first evening but slightly better on the 4th May when a Bar tailed Godwit, Greenshank and Hobby also passed through the site.

Now off to Long Point, Ontario for some spring warbler action.
