Wood Warbler

By ianrobinson  
Probably the Best shot I have of this very rare Bird in Norfolk.

It is incredibly hard to get a great shot of this Bird as it lives in a mix of deep under growth and thick leaved trees, but pleased with this one after spending 4 hours at this site trying to get a shot of him in the open.

A very rare visitor to Norfolk and as far as I am aware it is the only one here.
Apparently there were 2 around 2 weeks ago and the site where they were was kept quiet as they were hoping for a mating pair.
Unfortunately this has not happened and the female moved on sadly.
