After the Rain

Finally got out around the patch after the rain had cleared (constant rain for about 20 hours !), a Willow Warbler and an elusive Barred Warbler in the garden gave me a little bit of hope for the rest of the patch. Whilst walking along the road between gardens, a most unexpected surprise was a Grasshopper Warbler, flushed from the roadside ditch - I think that this is just the second record of Grasshopper Warbler at Scatness - so is now as common as Lanceolated Warbler !!! And finally, just before dark, a Common Rosefinch in one of the gardens of Colonial Place (too flighty and too dark to get a photo, so I'm using an old one).
