Warblers and more ……….

On my Good Friday walk around ANR I heard lots of warblers, saw some and photographed a couple, of which the best shot was a male blackcap.

Recognised mainly by its song, from which it gets its name – Chiffchaff – I managed a reasonable but ‘rear’ view of this elusive bird high up in a tree.

I frequently heard the explosive call of a Cetti’s Warbler (pronounced Chetty’s) but not more than a fleeting glimpse. By way of a bonus bird here is a picture of a Tree Sparrow, one of the colony occupying nest boxes in the garden by the visitor centre. It is good to see this rare bird thriving at ANR.
