When we arrived at Spurn we first stopped near the Crown and Anchor Pub to look over the sea. As soon as we looked we spotted about 6 Brent Geese really close in off shore also while we were watching them lots and lots of Golden Plover flew over our heads.
Afterwards we took a walk along the beach to get to the Canal Scrape Hide. On the way several more Brent Geese flew past. Also we got great views of Turnstone, Sanderling and Ringed Plover.
When we reached the hide all we could see was a few Juvenile Mute Swans. After a while a Robin came out of the reeds which then landed right next to the hide which was great to watch.
We left the hide to go to the Warren. When we arrived we saw lots of people standing outside the car park looking into some berry bushes. We asked a man to find out what they were watching and he replied 'Barred Warbler' so we kept our eyes focused on the bushes to see if he came out and after about 10mins of waiting we finally got our first views of a stunning Barred Warbler! He showed well for a few mins until diving back down into the bushes. This is my 200th bird on my life list!
After we had a quick check in the sea watching hide were we almost straight away spotted 2 Red Breasted Mergansers flying past. After that we didn't see another bird on the sea. By then it was about 1:00pm so we had to start setting of to go home. On the way back to the car we had one last quick check on the Barred Warbler and it turned out to be showing very well eating berries on one of the bushes! Also on the scrapes just of the cliffs there was hundreds of waders which mostly included Knots, Redshanks, Dunlin, Turnstone, Sanderling and Ringed Plover also a big group of Brent Geese came in fairly close.
Lots of Waders
After a great day and getting my 200th Lifer we decided to go home!
