Yellow-browed Warbler

Apologies for the poor images, but as it was a Yellow-browed Warbler I just had to post them. It is not a bird that you see everyday. 

A migratory species from the Palearctic. It winters in the tropical South Asia and South East Asia. Its breeding range is the Ural Moutains, Siberia, Mongolia and North East China.

We are fortunate to get a few turning up from September to November after a 3000 to 3500 Km journey from the Urals. Very small numbers attempt overwintering in UK.

Red-necked Grebe

 A visit to Lodmoor Reserve, Weymouth produced this Red-necked Grebe.
A scarce Winter visitor to UK, this is only the second one that I have seen. 
It mainly visits the coastal areas of UK. In Summer it breeds in the Baltic regions.
