The yellow-browed bunting is still there and many more have seen it by now. It's not the most cooperative bird really, on Sunday I got nothing but a short glimpse of it, but today around 3:45 PM it sat nicely exposed for a while which even allowed for some filming (although the light was pretty bad and on top of that I had to zoom in a little...).

The Yellow-Browed Bunting, Emberiza chrysophrys, is a passerine bird in the bunting family (Emberizidae), a group now separated by most modern taxonomists from the finches (Fringillidae). It breeds in eastern Siberia, and is migratory, wintering in central and southern China. It is a very rare wanderer to western Europe. The Yellow-Browed Bunting breeds in the taiga zone, and lays four eggs in an arboreal nest. In the wild, the adults' diet consists of seeds, but they feed insects to nestlings. More
