Upton Warren "in the sun" on a Bank Holiday!

A nice relaxed afternoon was had at Upton on the recent Bank Holiday, for once we didn't have to rush off any where and were able to have a wander from hide to hide and even walked between the Moors and the Flashes in the lovely sunshine, buying a well deserved ice cream from the garage.

What a contrast to a few days earlier when we left Mull in the pouring rain!

We even managed a few 2013 firsts, with all the warblers flitting about, bringing our year total with this and Mull to 138, 6 short of the same time last year. Out total for the day was a modest 44, just 1 short of our Upton record, we have never done an all dayer. Looking on Bird Forums this years all dayer on the Saturday totalled 89, so for 4 and half hours I'm happy with 44! If we could claim the Ross's Goose it would be 45!

So here's a few photo's from the day:
