BARRED WARBLER remains on Blows Downs for a third day

Spent some quality time with the BARRED WARBLER again today, the bird showing well on and off for around two hours from midday. It was still frequenting the Half Moon Slope, just 100 yards walk up from the road - munching away on Elder and Blackberries. Around 25 birders came and went. COMMON STONECHAT numbers on the slope had increased to 10, while other species noted included Common Buzzard, Sparrowhawk, 9+ Meadow Pipit, Bullfinch, 1 Willow Warbler, 1 Song Thrush and a Green Woodpecker.
