Late news from Hodcombe for yesterday, where Roger and Liz had a decent fall of Chiffchaffs, also our first Yellow-browed Warbler of the Autumn and 2 Marsh Harriers.
Roger had looked for the Yellow-browed this morning but no sign by mid-morning, although good numbers of Chiffchaffs were again present in Hodcombe.
