A goldcrest - probably a migrant from Scandinavia

A goldcrest – probably a migrant from Scandinavia

I have been away for the week in Catalonia enjoying olive groves full of blackcaps and chiff-chaffs. For once the Crail weather has been kind to me while I have been away with only a firecrest and a barred warbler turning up in the last week. I can’t complain about the firecrest – I have been watching them all week in Spain – and there was another barred warbler found at Kilminning this morning. I looked for it this afternoon when I got back. I only ever see about one barred warbler for every four searches so I wasn’t too disappointed when I couldn’t find it today. Kilminning was very quiet with only a female blackcap (this week’s bird in any case) and some goldcrests as obvious migrants. Three barnacle geese flying over were the highlight.
