I birded The Ness in Shaldon for an hour this morning and was chuffed to find a Yellow-browed Warbler flitting amongst the sycamores on the south side. There has been a large influx of this species into the country in recent weeks so its appearance perhaps wasn't entirely unexpected but still a very good bird for the patch. It was still present this afternoon but instead frequented the trees to the west of the new scout hut and was much more elusive. At least three Firecrests, 15+ Goldcrests and a Chiffchaff were also in the area.
