Yellow-rumped Warbler: What a cracking end to a brilliant week, finished off nicely with my first yank warbler.

Nice to catch up with Ashley Baines and a few other familiar faces amid the 150 strong crowd.

I think we got lucky in the end as just when we arrived the crowds swiftly moved away from peering over a garden fence as the bird moved in to a line of bushes along the roadside, giving us some excellent views - much better than peering over someone fence!
The Myrtle was enjoying a lovely pair of coconuts and greedily chasing away all the local Robins.

A superb little cracker!
