Still rather desperate to get a positive ID on the browed warbler, I returned latter in the afternoon and was very lucky indeed to reconnect with it in almost exactly the same place as to where I found yesterday! Thankfully it confirmed my belief (based on yesterdays fleeting glimpses) that it was infact a YELLOW-BROWED WARBLER Phylloscopus inornatus! It performed rather well, feeding in the Maple trees lining the edge of the footpath, occasionally hovering and gleaning insects from the underside of leaves in its characteristic fashion. As the sky darkened, it suddenly vanished, not after I had enjoyed its presence for some considerable time. In all a very satisfying end to the day with another self-found scarcity under my belt (Cornwall birding is certainly reaping in the rewards)!
