Richard's Pipit & other Birds & Jellyfish

Richard's Pipit Anthus richardi
Deryk caught this bird by hand! After watch a following the bird for some time. The bird was seen entering a hiding spot in the Wali Burn near my house, he stuck his hand in under the overhang and like a magician and his hat he pulled out the rare bird. The bird was caught & ringed yesterday evening and seen again today. 

Besides Richard's Pipit there was plenty of other interesting birds around...
Paddyfield, Lanceolated, Arctic Warblers, Olive-backed Pipit, etc.
 but no further sightings of the Magnolia Warbler...
