Yesterday, I managed to catch up with the Yellow-browed Warbler that was first seen on the 21st January in the patch of scrub and woodland by the railway bridge over the River Teign at Newton Abbot Quay. I was able to give it a couple of hours today and eventually received fantastic close views. It remained silent for most of the time, however, occasianally went through some bursts of call. A Firecrest also showed well there.
On the estuary, 12 Lesser Black-backed Gulls suggested that spring migration was beginning to get going. The continued absence of Tufted Duck was also notable at Decoy Lake.
