Got to the north of mainland for first light hoping for the Thrush but as predicted it had gone. A real shame but atleast it wasn't a Veery. I went as far north as I could go where a large patch of iris beds kept me busy for a while. Mega news of a PG Gropper in the south got me hurtling it down there only to find it was a normal Gropper (yet more over keen observers not willing to look at the bird properly before releasing news), and then news of a Pechora got me racing back NW. Nice views of this then I just birded a couple of towns after by which time the wind had really picked up. Still, a better day and as usual, I'm looking forward to the next day.
