Yellow-throated Vireo, Kernow, September 1990

My first weekend at Farnborough College - I was kidnapped by a local birders mum (John Dixon) and taken by night speed to a little Cornish Valley to join 1000 other bleary eyed birders. Everyone was trained on a small clump of bushed on one side of the valley and if by magic out came a yellow ball of feathers carrying a star spangled banner- causing a massive cheer from all present ! I even went back the following weekend and collected the Red-eyed Vireo in the next valley !
