Holyhead Barred Warbler Photos

Thanks to Ken for finding and letting me know about this bird.Despite having the three little-uns in tow as my wife was playing hockey, again thanks to Ken I managed to get onto the bird.I had it down to 5 meters at one point but unfortunately my son ran forward as he had spotted the blackberries the Warbler was heading for! So it melted back into the bushes and we left. As I was heading back down the road in the car, the bird popped out again on top of a Hawthorn bush. I jumped out of the car and it was showing well and didn't seem particularly skittish. This allowed me time to take some photos with the kids safely locked in the car :-)
