"on checking the village net shortly after dawn I found a yellow-browed in the bottom shelf, the bird was duly ringed and released in to the wood, on flying off it called and to my amazement this was answered by another bird already in the wood. Walking around the dell produced another and different bird in a 40ft net near the main path - this was duly ringed and also released in the wood. Later in the day another and unringed bird was briefly seen in a game crop near the cliff top before our attentions were drawn to a 1st winter Rustic Bunting feeding at the base of the first bit of cover inland of the cliff towards Bempton RSPB Reserve"
