RIVER WARBLER still present

This singing male RIVER WARBLER (superbly photographed by Lynne Demaine) is still present just north of Applecross (Highland Region), favouring the Sycamore by the Cemetery just behind the Heritage Centre (at NG 712 458).
Meanwhile, Cley Marsh NWT's (Norfolk) purple patch continues, with a WHITE-WINGED BLACK TERN over Pat's Pool and Simmonds Scrape early afternoon (the two-day Buff-breasted Sandpiper has moved on but up to 8 EURASIAN SPOONBILLS and 5 Limosa Black-tailed Godwits continue).
In Somerset, the male LITTLE BITTERN is still on territory 4 miles west of Glastonbury at Walton Heath (ST 460 395) and in Orkney, the GREAT WHITE EGRET is still at Graemeshall Loch.
