the new defences around Barton Haven held but there were a few leaks and the water was certainly high! covered the walkway around Waters' Edge Visitor Centre-- by high tide the wind had almost gone had it still been rough then things may have been a bit different -- it will be interesting seeing Alkborough Flats tomorrow

a variety of shots of the Gibraltar Point bird today showing the huge variation in appearance due to changing light, reflections from dark green ivy, bright green leaves, the effects of dark and shade etc; during a couple of hours it could look like 5 different birds or maybe even species!
In 2003 the first two Lincolnshire Hume's (Leaf) Warblers were found in October and I managed one of my greatest digi-scoping triumphs getting an image of the Gibraltar Point bird (below) -- hyper-active phylloscs are not great digi-scoping subjects - ten year on and Lincs' third Hume's has taken up residence again at Gibraltar Point so I went along today to refresh my memory of the species and hopefully get some images and recordings; some sample recordings below all from today and here the shot of the 2003 bird with a Swaro scope and the old trusty Nikon Coolpix E880 with all its 3MPixels
