Thanks to Rod Key for the following:-

YELLOW BROWED WARBLER   This bird still present this dinnertime-Jan 10th-on Sinfin Moor Lane in bushes on the right hand side just after where the cycle track crosses the lane. This bird can be very elusive so do be prepared to put some time in to see this bird. Do not try to access the riding stables etc on the lane and please park sensibly. Preferably on the estate just before Sinfin Moor Lane and walk about 400yards etc to the site. Do not park on Infinity Way or the Police may well be interested in you. The best pace to try and  see this bird is in the area on the right hand side of the lane just after the Cycle track where it frequents an area of about 30 metres between the tall tree and the big ivy bush.
