Yellow Browed.

After another night of light north-easterlies, got out early and did a Basil Fawlty on Scatness and gave it 'a damn good thrashing', after more than 2 hours of bush kicking and thistle stomping - the reward - 3 Snipe and a Green Sandpiper !! Went back out mid-afternoon and did the same circuit again, this time things got a little better with 10 Swallows, a Whimbrel and a Lesser Whitethroat, a text from 'The Bell' stating that there was a Yellow-browed Warbler and an Icterine Warbler at Geosetter didn't help matters, so I gave up and went home. On opening the garden gate at home, justice was done - a Yellow-browed Warbler in the garden, along with a Willow Warbler (the garden was totally birdless all morning). The Yellow-browed took the garden year-list up to 119 - and the return of the 10 bird gap over the competition.
