It's getting congested in the middle of the table
I had a good weekend for a change. A morning walk produced a nice lesser whitethroat and a couple of blackcaps in one of the heugh-top gardens, and a barnacle goose flying over with pinkies. Then in the afternoon, while cleaning out my bird feeders, I could hear the unmistakable 'tsi-leet' down at England Farm. Surely a yellow-browed warbler? Surely not judging by Portlethen being the only place in Britain without a yellow-brow during earlier falls. Bugger me, it was, and another blackcap at the farm as well. Neither were there this morning, so looks like new birds were arriving in the afternoon. Oh, and I'll have that yellow-brow on me garden list, thank you.
