Laira ~ Yellow Browed Warbler,

Spent the late morning with Keith Male trying to track down the Laira Yellow Browed Warbler, eventually found if even if only very fleetingly just off of Embankment Road (opposite Glendennings) it is ranging around a tennis court sized area either side of the pedestrian walk way leading up to the foot bridge over the main road. At the bottom of the walk way on the right is a mature Willow and as the hedge carries along with smaller Willows that is where it was tending to show, heard it calling before actually seeing it. The dense cover makes it very difficult to see and unable to photograph given that by the time you see it its on the go again.

Very confiding Buzzard at the other end of the footpath. Good mix of Gulls on the Plym, Redshank, Curlew, Little Egret's and Shell duck in the main. A few Goldfinch in the area.
