Budleigh Salterton

A Yellow-browed Warbler was present yesterday afternoon and this morning on the coast path west from Budleigh Golf Course. Quite an interesting bird as yesterday it was giving a very subdued short call and although the views weren't great yesterday in the mist (thanks Matt for helping me re-find it!), it appeared to have dark legs and be quite dusky below, possibly showing some similarity to Hume's.
However, this morning it was giving the full and powerful more expected call of inornatus and showed 2 bright wing bars, despite perhaps not being the brightest YBW I have ever seen! Also present 2 Firecrest and at least a 3rd bird on Halse Hill.
