Willow Warbler and YBW

Willow Warbler - Orcombe Point
Nick and I did Orcombe from dawn but it was again very quiet. Best bird by far was our first Willow Warbler of the spring - a singing bird in scrub bordering the Bristol Schools field. Back at home I was finally able to enjoy prolonged views of the Yellow-browed Warbler as it fed quietly in our neighbour's garden - its presence given away by a single call as we were all piling in the car to go to the in-laws'. Otherwise little to report.

Yellow-browed Warbler - photographed from our front garden. Difficult to see in this small tree, never mind photograph. I can now appreciate how it has managed to elude me for most of the winter. If it hadn't called I'd never have known it was there.
