Flamborough Head

Yellow Browed Warbler

A couple of hours spent on Flamborough Head this afternoon with the aim of getting Heather a life tick of Yellow Browed Warbler and a year tick of Wheatear. Yesterday on Flamborough c132 Yellow Browed Warblers were reported, so I was confident that we should succeed. Within the golf course willows, we had the pleasure of viewing c10 YBW's, zipping about a great speed! I of course suffered the frustration of trying to get one in my camera lens, with a sweet choice of comments being uttered under my breath! The "record" image above was the only one that was "usable"! Elsewhere, several Wheatear were observed in the short stubble field, so our aim had been fulfilled!
