I popped to Spurn this afternoon for the white spotted bluethroat.i didn't hold out much hope as usually they are very elusive at Spurn and seem to disappear soon after being reported.
This one today was slightly more obliging-it spent most of the time in the bottom of the ditch showing only occasionally. it popped up to the small bush along the ditch only once while I was there but it was here that it gave its best views.
As the afternoon went on it got duller and made viewing all the more difficult.
Still it was very nice to see and apparently Spurns first white spotted bird since the sixties.
