Hume's Leaf Warbler

This HUME'S LEAF WARBLER (pictured above by Jed Andrews) was trapped on the NOA reserve today (23rd November) at 09:30, having been present since yesterday (when it was heard only). It was retrapped in net 0A and had a fat score of 1. It is only the 2nd Holme record, following one on 22nd October 1997. The bird is favouring the west end of the reserve although it is being rather elusive - after being released today it was only heard a couple of times in the afternoon.
