6th November 2003 Beachy 3.15pm – 4.45pm. Light SE breeze but warm and sunny

Green Woodpecker 2
Chiffchaff 2
Hume’s Yellow-browed Warbler 1 Found by JFC. Only seen for around a minute in fading light at c.4.15pm so bare parts not determined and although plumage looked dull the light was hardly helpful! A prominent wingbar across the greater coverts and breast looked surprisingly white. Upperparts appeared olive-toned. A quick burst of around five calls heard clearly being loud, dysybillic and more Chiffchaff-like than the thin call note of yellow-browed.
Goldcrest c.15
Brambling 1
