5.11.20 Dusky Warbler

A clear day with a light northerly wind.

Hot on the heals of Saturdays Pallas’s Warbler came this Dusky Warbler, a much drabber but much rarer phyllosc here at Beachy Head. The bird was trapped this morning and not seen by anyone beyond those who ringed it. Although released close to the ringing hut, it unfortunately was not seen or heard again. Weighing in at a hefty 10.2g it’s unlikely to be a newly arrived migrant.
