Booty is in the eye of the beholder

Yellow rumped Warblers hail from across the pond and are good looking birds. That is unless they are first winter jobbies; then even if they are males it has to be said, they are an acquired taste. They do have a redeeming feature though; their bright yellow booty. So when they turn up on the edge of a semi-rural housing estate a couple of miles from the A1 in Durham and you’re making your way up to Scotland they have to be worth a shout … don’t they? Well, we thought so.

A grim day and poor light coupled with the feeders to which it was attracted being set low inside bushes away from patrolling Sparrowhawks led to poor photographic prospects. In the time we allowed nothing more than record shots could be gained.
