Two rarities in one day for me; Yellow-browed Warbler and David Sutcliffe!

The latter can usually be seen through the scope from Ned Hill around the Hunter Hill area.

Breeding no closer than the Russian Urals, it is perhaps a bit surprising that Yellow-browed Warbler is a frequent - and increasing - vagrant to Britain and Ireland. September is the classic month to find this diminutive stray, with individuals often joining tit flocks at coastal sites, especially in the east. This year's first record wasn't until 22 September, nearly a fortnight later than in 2010/11. Yellow-browed Warblers are now here in force, with birds being recorded from the Shetlands to the Scillies, and even as far west as County Mayo, Ireland, in the last week.And now in Halifax...well done Deneise

Well done indeed, this is an ambition bird for me down Denholme Clough and now I know it is a possibilty rather than just a vis-miggers dream.........
