Pine Bunting frustration

reports made it sound as if the York Pine Bunting was getting seen more often so at last decided to go -- in 5 hours watching the supposedly favoured seed area we saw it once for 2-3 minutes in a distant hedge hence the terrible record dots -- good views through the Swaro scope but you are left wanting more as its appearances seem to brief -- never went down on the seed in spite of up to 40 Yellowhammers being there mid afternoon and it seemed to be either on its own or with a single Yellowhammer hence I guess it is actually spending most of its time somewhere else? only 34 miles away but a terrible journey and not really encouraged to try again
