Taken with Nikon P900 in 'Birdwatching' mode.
This looks like the same first-summer female that was at Sherburn earlier in the month - I didn't see the Sherburn bird, but a few other birders though it was the same bird - I've looked at a few photographs of that bird and it does look like the same bird.
It sat in a hedge row for 3.5 hours - lovely through the telescope - although it looks like an adult female, its head is creamy; the tertials were brownish; brownish neck collar and buffish underparts - most first-summer birds in May still retain their juvenile outer-tail feathers, but this female has moulted its tail feathers.
It was a lovely morning last Saturday and I couldn't resist another visit to Far Ings - the Blyth's Reed Warbler was singing its socks off - it was still present on Sunday, but no sign today.
