In the way of birding?

When I first started to train as a ringer, somebody said to me "You'll get a lot out of it, but it gets in the way of your birding"

I was kinda thinking that today when we were catching not very much (eight birds between 6 am and noon) and messages were coming in form RBA with tales of good seawatching. Thoughts of sitting in my deck chair on the dune at Druridge or even better at Church Point, Newbiggin had to be forgotten about, there was work to be done.

So still no sooty shearwater on my year list, no balearics or sabine's gull. We did catch a nice reed warbler though...
