Staying in Yorkshire made it easy to get there pre-dawn and be at the front of the queue when the praying started to ensure it was still present. In the gloom of dawn we could soon make out a shape with enough colour visible to confirm its presence. It was already feeding in its preferred location.
First view of Britain's second Siberian Accentor...
As the light got marginally better (it was grey and drizzling), it proved hard to photograph, but that didn't really matter.
After spending some time in Easington, it was down to the Spurn area where is turning into a classic autumn day with some superb birds present.
This Pallas's Warbler was trapped and released mid-morning.
Lesser Redpolls and one of hundreds of Goldcrest in the trapping area:
Near the beach, a couple of Shore Larks:
An unusually showy Dusky Warbler by the canal:
On the way out, another look for the Siberian Accentor found it feeding almost out of view in the gas terminal. However, it soon flew back to its previous location and briefly perched up on a post for a superb final view of it.
