Hume's Warbler

This afternoon, while playing soccer with my two sons not far away from our house, I heard the typical 'chew-wit' call of a Hume's Warbler from a large Carrob tree. Before my kids understood what's going on I ran home, grabbed my bins and camera and ran back to the soccer field. I spent the next hour or so trying to get something of it but the bird was very shy and restless - only got some brief views and one awful sound recording. Hope to improve that tomorrow.
My village is a Hume's hotspot - last winter I found (and later ringed) one about 1 km from my house. Today this one was closer - about 200 m from my house. Next one in the garden please.
