Bird of the Day end up a Garden Bird

One week on, we thought we'd give Montnegra another go and see if the Trumpeter Finch's had re turned ? There wasn't any sign at the few historical sites that we know of, but there was a mixture of new arrivals?

Black eared Wheatear, Rock Sparrow some female Black Restarts still moving through.

Black Restart

A brief call of Bonnelli's Warbler rattle from a bank of pines? A grey heron gave us a fright as I thought it might of been a Greater Bitten, for a second or two as it followed along the river bed, We tried out our new route 4+ Sub Alpine Warbler's, showed but always difficult and sulking, we gave it our best and also time  quite a few Sardinean Warbler's popped out on our search.

We left GA around 8.30 but not before the resident Black Wheatear (Garden Bird) put on a mega show for us, this bird is always around and displaying this time of the year.
