20221208 Hume's Yellow-browed Warbler, Brancaster seawall pool


20221208 Hume's Leaf Warbler
Pale base to lower mandible and pale cutting edges, not a mainly dark bill...
Noticable median covert bar...
Pale greenish mid-grey upperparts though.

20221208 Hume's Leaf Warbler
Loud calls repeated in bursts easily heards from across pool... as Yb Warbler.
Only 4 bursts heard very close in, one good for Hume's with a single 'deewoo' note in centre of series.
Other 3 busts as Yb Warbler to fool the big eared birder.
Greater coverts showed dark centres in all shots...
