3.10.20 Yellow browed Warbler… finally!

A light southerly wind with broken cloud after 24hrs of very strong SE and E winds and occasional heavy rain.

A very late start for me today. I passed through the Belle Tout area then on to Cornish Farm and Long Wood. With high hopes that at least one Yellow-browed was out there to find somewhere. Long Wood was very quiet, I was unable to locate any feeding flocks of birds and saw perhaps 3 Chiffchaff. 3 Yellow Wagtail were around the cattle pens at Cornish and the whole area had a mixed flock of about 500 Swallow and House Martin, a Merlin also passed through.

As I returned to Belle Tout my attention was turned to a small feeding flock passing through the bushes and was very pleased to see a Yellow browed Warbler fly across in front of me. It continued to show in the bushes below the lighthouse associating with a flock of Great Tit, Blue Tit and a Chiffchaff. It’s my first here for 2 years, 2019 being very poor for them at Beachy Head.
