Yellow-browed Warbler, Salthouse, 15th September 2014
Monday is ‘duty day’ at Cley NWT and there was plenty to keep us entertained today. Up to six juvenile Curlew Sandpipers, three Common Sandpipers, Whinchat, lots of Wheatear, a nice flock of Pintail, a rather showy Cetti’s Warbler, 3 Hobby, a couple of Water Rail and, after ‘work’, a superb Yellow-browed Warbler – just up the road, at Salthouse.
One of three Common Sandpipers on Pat’s Pool
There were over a dozen Wheatear on the fields along Beach Road
This little chap nearly sat on my boot!
To finish with, a few more pics of that delightful long-distant migrant, which breeds east of the Ural mountains and should be wintering in South East Asia – Yellow-browed Warbler
