Berry Head

Hume's Leaf Warbler in quarry watched from a distance intially and only heard calling 'zveest' then lost for nearly 1 hour but relocated on arrival of Andy Plumb and Clive when it called loudly 'chi-wee, chi-wee' and showed well - despite being seemingly dull olive upper parts and not as grey as I have seen Hume's Leaf Warbler previously, my concerns waned as the rest of the plumage features and call are all good for Hume's Leaf Warbler.
