I have been unable to get out around Crail for the last three days. The barred warbler continues to be reported from Kilminning, occasionally popping out of its elder bushes for the patient watchers. It should stay put for a while, looking at the overnight rain forecast for the next few days. The wind is also setting up for the weekend nicely: the first redwings were reported today so we might expect ring ouzels and black redstarts and perhaps a major rarity for Saturday. I’ll be hoping for an isabelline shrike at Balcomie – well its good to dream as it turns into a real easterly gale outside tonight.

The barred warbler in residence at Kiminning this week (JA). I like this photo a lot because it capture the feeling of a barred warbler well – this is the kind of view you get if you are lucky, and then only for a second or two.
