Believe it or not this is my first Garden Warbler in Exmouth this year. The patch of elders that I found it in is the most reliable spot for this species that I know of, however I'd never say that Garden Warbler is guaranteed in Exmouth in any given year. It was sharing the elders with at least 4 Blackcaps. Otherwise a single Willow Warbler was noted and a green-ringed Mediterranean Gull flew past Orcombe Point, towards the river mouth.
Mudbank was more productive with the juvenile Black Tern, 2 Knot, 2 Common Tern, c100+ Mallard, c10+ Whimbrel and a juvenile Mediterranean Gull on a brief morning visit.
A Golden-ringed Dragonfly is well camouflaged in Blackthorn scrub with accompanying sloes.
It is incredible that you were able to capture this bird hiding in the bushes. These photos are amazing, you must have great patience. Thanks for the share, hope you had a fantastic weekend. Keep up the posts.ReplyDelete
