Dumped the bags and headed for Newford Duck Pond. After a 20 min wait the Arctic Warbler showed pretty well flitting around the willows. No chance of a photo, but pleased with the first tick of the holiday.
Dropped down through Holy Vale and Higher Moors, but had nothing other than a couple of calling Chiffchaff and 3 Greenshank on Porthellick Pool.
The airfield had 20+ Wheatear, 2 Lapland Bunting and 1 Skylark feeding at fairly short range.
Wandered through Lower Moors seeing Water Rail and Sedge Warbler, but a 45 min wait at Shooter's Pool for the Spotted Crake was fruitless.
Knackered and with a bit of sun burn, I retired for a pint.
