Thursday 3rd October: Yellow-browed Warbler Still

Thankfully the wonderful YELLOW-BROWED WARBLER stuck around enabling quite a few county birders to twitch it this morning . Indeed eight or so (who all bar one needed it for their county life list) were there at first light and fortunately the bird duly performed, calling frequently so that it could easily be tracked. It seemed to be fairly faithful to the pollarded Willows that line the side of the road as it leads down to the car park and would generally return there, though sometimes it would go missing for a while. The last report that I heard of was at around midday but I don't know whether anybody tried to see it later on in the day - it may well still be around.
