Yellow Warbler and Heyshott

Yellow Warbler, Setophaga petechia

Yesterday I joined Murray Downland Trust and Sussex Butterfly Conservation members Neil, Mark and Roger for a work party at Heyshott. Everyone agreed it was good to get stuck into some real work again after the excesses of the festive period. The walk up the hill seemed tougher than usual. We cleared a lot of sloping hillside surrounding a bowl. I joined Mark for a cappuccino at Graffham village before resting my groaning back at home.

This morning I browsed through some photos from my Galapagos trip in 2008 and found this Yellow Warbler taken at La Galapaguera de Cerro Colorado Giant Tortoise Reserve, Isabella Island. It is a male in full breeding plumage.
