Yellow-browed Warbler - Queens Rd, Burnley, Lancs - 3rd Oct 2007.

Burnley birder Russell Carter is certainly on a roll at the moment, discovering East Lancashires fourth Yellow-browed Warbler in trees at his Burnley workplace only a few days after having the good fortune to see 2 juv Gannets heading west over Wood End Sewage Works, Burnley!
Extremely vocal at times, this cracking one-day wonder YBW showed well on and off in the canopy of Hawthorn and Sycamore. Pity I couldn't obtain any better images but the top photo shows a good suite of features. All three previous East Lancashire records have been found in birders gardens.
