Icterine Warbler

in Autumn

Flamborough 24 Sept. 2013

Just celebrating great birds. I have looked and listened and looked for that first Yellow-browed Warbler of my autumn. None yet, Just Chiffchaffs, fly over Lapland Bunting, odd Willow Warblers, in-off Snipes and rare looking gulls. At lunchtime today Brett sent a text: The ‘2 Johns’ had fund an Icterine Warbler in the Bay Willows. With a bit of patience, a lovely showy bird:
