Turf and Countess Wear

Broke self-imposed twitching ban to see the american robin this morning. Big thank you to mark for making me see sense - a fantastic bird! Also 5+ brambling over and a snow bunting fairly low south calling scarily like lap bunting but thankfully showing off big white wing flashes. A quick whiz around the Old Sludge Beds at Countess Wear produced two grey chiffs one calling like tristis but seen too briefly and another looking perfect on plumage but not heard.
