Hume's Warbler

Originally found on 7th November, this calling Hume's was still present this afternoon, frequenting the bushes at the end of the short access track at the north end of the wetland at St Mary's. Light was not particularly favourable so a high ISO was utilised.

Several very tame goldcrest and robin also added to the mix, along with some enjoyable chat with Lindsay McDougall, fresh back from Mexico.

Is November the "new" October? The last 5 days or so have provided some remarkable birding... granted the species available are typical of the month, but the sheer availability of migrants and scarcities in a condensed period is most satisfying!
