YBW and Mistle Thrushes

Mistle Thrush - Maer long-stay carpark.
Very little time after work this evening with low cloud rolling in, bringing darkness sooner than expected. I did a quick lap of the Bristol Schools field and picked up a Yellow-browed Warbler in scrub in the bottom left hand corner. If it hadn't called I would never have seen it. This is still only my third record for Orcombe Point. In the same field were at least 3 Song Thrushes and a single Chiffchaff.
The Maer long-stay carpark produced 3 Goldcrests and 2 Mistle Thrushes which are always hard to come by in Exmouth, and Paul Gosling had a male Black Redstart on Exeter Road School first thing this morning, before it disappeared off into the Colonies.
