Another Attenborough selection

I’ve visited my favourite nature reserve a couple of times this week. On tuesday three little sparrow sized birds were flitting about in the grass. Closer inspection revealed that they were meadow pipits – a first for me at ANR.

It is set of nicely by the sparkling dewdrops on the grass.

At first glance you might think that this is a wren but I was very lucky to get a clear shot of a cetti’s  (pronounced chetty’s) warbler. I often hear its explosive call but a clear view is a treat.

On my walk this morning (thursday) there was not a lot about but I was pleased to spy a trio of common snipe feeding in the shallows.

You can now compare the common snipe with the jack snipe in my previous post!
