I saw the Hume's Yellow-browed Warbler at Littlesea on the Fleet shortly after its arrival a few weeks ago but was unable to photograph it at the time. A second attempt more recently ended in no sighting let alone no photos, but reports of it still present this morning tempted me back for a 3rd attempt. In three hours I heard six 'tsueet' calls, had three brief glimpses and snatched two pictures through the branches of the sallows - this the best of the two. Could have been worse though! A Blackcap and a few Bullfinches kept company with the Hume's, and 600 Brent Geese on the Fleet provided a noisy backdrop.

Welcome to Peter Moore's wildlife blog, created largely to compensate for a failing short-term memory by providing a record of my experiences watching and photographing wildlife. I have been fortunate enough to see over 450 species of bird and 61 species of butterfly in Great Britain, photographing most of these (badly) over the course of the last 15 years.
