Barra

Post by Bruce » 29 May 2016, 20:57

There's been a few new arrivals around Brevig, Barra in the past couple of days. Yesterday a female pied flycatcher and a spotted flycatcher were present. Today a red-breasted flycatcher was in the same area though it proved to be elusive as it fed low down among dense sycamore growth. A hawfinch was seen briefly in flight a couple of times during the day before settling in the canopy of a sycamore where it showed well for 20 minutes or so in the late afternoon. 2 swifts passed through mid morning heading south west.
