  Went west with Dan to have a snoop for a Summer Tanager found by Jesse White a few days ago in a suburban wasteland - a great record. No luck on the twitch, but we did come across some season firsts, and a lovely little Northern Brown Snake, which I removed from the perilous bike path. Wot a tiny little ripper, I yelped in an Australian accent.
