Again, no sign 0800-1000hrs today despite a wider search. Singles of Blackcap and Grey Wagtail were the best I managed.
No sign of any YBW this morning, and only 1 Goldcrest between the bridges. Seemed to be a scattering of Goldcrests elsewhere though so it may still be in the area. Also, 1 Treecreeper (my first here in several years), 2 Grey Wagtails, 3 Song Thrush, 1 Bullfinch and 2 GSWoodpeckers.
1 YBW Warbler still present 1100-1300hrs, showing well but infrequetly. Also the Siberian Chiffchaff seen/heard briefly in the vegetation west of the stream.
One still present this morning at 10:30, though it was elusive in the cold wind. Seemed to be associating with Long-tailed Tit flock.
One showing very well this morning between 9.00 & 10.00am even feeding amongst the leaf litter on the ground, seemed to like the company of a goldcrest.
Two birds present at around midday today.
One Yellow-Browed Warbler showing quite well again today , very mobile . between 12.30 and 2.15 . Also several gold crests , Long Tailed Tits , Wrens and a white speckled Black Bird.

1 YBW still showing well at midday today between the 2 bridges.
One YBW present on and off during the morning until 13:30 - usual location. Very mobile once again, making good photographs a bit of a challenge!
YBW Warbler still present yesterday,associating with Blue Tits and a Gold crest, between the two bridges and flitting back and forth at the top of the coppiced pussy willows along the stream. I was about to give up after a 45mins search when two fellow birders spotted it.Many thanks to the chap from Bristol who called me over as i was about to leave.This really is an excellent habitat in the depths of yeovil.
1 YBW still present this morning between bridges. Was elusive to begin with but showed well 0845-0900hrs.
At least 1 Yellow-browed Warbler still present this morning (10:30am) favouring the bushes and scrub near the stream in the usual area, several Goldcrests and 1 Chiffchaff also present
One (perhaps two) YBWs showing very well at Yeovil Openspace this morning, along with several chiffchaffs and goldcrests.
Both YBW showing very well again this morning in the long awaited sunshine that I have been hoping for all week. Siberian Chiffchaff also present on and off during the morning plus at least one visit by a Firecrest, probably the same one sighted here last week. All in all, a nice early Christmas present. Merry Christmas to one and all.
Both YBWs showing extremely well today, one even fed on the ground about 3 metres away. Only other birds of note were 3 male bullfinch.
