This morning I returned to the field where I had the Blyth's Pipit yesterday. I set up lots of nets in the general area where it spent most of its time yesterday, but the bird was not present this morning. It did not end up in the net nor was it seen in the field. Ringing was quite OK with lots of Red-throated Pipits and Willow Warblers. This juv. Corncrake was caught before first light - unusual to see a healthy bird. Most I have seen in recent years were injured / dead /dying.
Red-throated PipitThe Oriental Skylark was seen briefly early in the morning, and a Bimaculated Lark flew over.
