Another little migrating visitor

Rainy breezy grey day at 10degC – not good migrating weather – so pleased to see a small warbler feeding in top branches of tree (still with green leaves) outside my 4th floor office window this morning.  Single wide white wing bar indicates Hume’s Leaf Warbler, which are common in the mountains and surrounding countryside all summer.  Our other resident (with thinner wing bar) is Greenish Warbler, but last one spotted here on 7 Sept.  Both warblers move quickly around while feeding but occasionally conveniently perch for a short while, allowing better sighting.  This one today didn’t oblige and flew off too soon.  I am now totally distracted from what I was working on as I continually look up checking for its return or for more interesting visitors to add to our resident Great Tits and House Sparrows.  Heading out soon to select electrical accessories for new kitchen being installed this month, so hope my little visitor reappears before this.
