Garden Garden Warbler


This Garden Warbler sang, very furtively, on and off for most of the morning, eventually moving to the opposite side of the playing fields. Its only competition was a couple of the local Blackcaps.
 
Orcombe at dawn was pleasingly people-less and almost as bird-less. Two Great Northern Diver and a Hobby were the highlights, the latter heading low in a straight line north, having presumably just come 'in-off'.
Back home a Garden Warbler was singing and the Little Tern was again fishing up and down the channel off Starcross. Also today - 2 Siskin over north-east, 36 Whimbrel upriver with at least 50 more on Cockle Sands later. Additionally I recorded 15 Sandwich Tern, 5 Swallow, 5 House Martin, 2 Pale-bellied Brent Goose, 5 Dark-bellied Brent Goose and c85 Oystercatcher.
