Late Friday afternoon Lewis arrived and news of a Wood Warbler and Pied Flycatcher at Stockers and Bury Lake respectively was good news. Anna Marett and Joan Thomson continued their purple
patch but at 1500hrs we could not locate the Wood Warbler,a good number of birders were struggling
I returned home then came back later around1600hrs .Andrew Moon got onto it by its sub call and
managed some photos and I at least had good views of it in the Hawthorn.
