Yellow-browed Warbler

Having just returned from wintering in Southern Spain, Kathy and I decided our first Pembs trip would be to Monk Haven. It was a shock to find the Water Treatment Works cleared of scrub and trees so we moved to the Churchyard, where the trees along the stream are usually productive. A wintering Yellow-browed was one of the first birds seen along with half a dozen 'collybita' Chiffchaffs (rubbish photos below). It disappeared from time to time but came back several times. The Chiffchaffs were occasionally calling and even singing and I heard what sounded like a Sibe Chiff but didn't see it - however it may be there to be nailed.
