BBC Thurrsday walk checklist

Led by Tom Stephenson

photos by Tom, Black & White Warbler, Spotted sandpiper, Zabulon Skipper

Hi Peter,
Well, we had a good-sized group today. Unfortunately the birds forgot to show up...well, actually we did have some good sightings. But all in all it was a bit slower than last week.
We did have 8 species of warblers including Blue-winged and Chestnut-sided along with Red-breasted Nuthatch and a Veery.

Other than the Blue-winged and Chestnut-sided, the bird of the day  might have been a Zabulon Skipper (photo attached)

Here's a list and a couple of pictures.
