|Yellow-rumped Warbler - Honest!|
Just short of Durham it started to snow and I was sitting in the back of the car thinking the worst. My last trip to the extreme north-east of England resulted in a big fat dip in the form of a White-throated Robin. Anyway when we arrived on site we couldn't find a single birder or anyone who looked like a birder! Soon enough we managed to locate the area and within a couple of minutes of it getting light eagle-eyed Matthew Robert Eade managed to find the wobbler.
We watched the bird for a couple of hours as it fed on the fat balls and the coconut feeders hung in the hedgeline. It seemed to be in a pretty steady routine and every so often chased a Blue or Coal Tit but was getting owned by a couple of over-aggressive Robins. We left the site just after 9.30am and I was back in plenty of time for my meeting at work. Many thanks to CG for the driving and to the rest of the lads for banter and air bummin!
