It's in There, Somewhere ...

Yellow-browed Warblers

These tiny birds have been pushed acrss the North Sea in huge numbers this year. You'd have to be unlucky not to find one along the coast somewhere this week if you went out looking (and listening for their suueezzzt call).

Once found, getting good views requires a bit of patience and getting a picture requires a bit of luck.

As you'll see they hide behind branches or leaves giving tantalising glimpses of supercillium, wing bars, broad pale-edged feathers, pale legs and pale lower mandible. But rarely all in one view.

You can imagine how happy I am therefore with this snapshot of a very lively bird.

On the other hand Chiffchaffs just show off :-)
