14th of June 2015 - Melodious Warbler - Marsh Lane, Warwickshire.
|My distant record shot|
Following other commitments since this local rarity showed up near the Marsh Lane N.R. I really didn't think I would get to see it!
Setting out after reading "Twitter" and a phone call to a birding mate, I made my way out in what was a really dull afternoon, rain clouds filled the sky and as I drove towards the area, rain spots appeared and thoughts of wet weather gear was on the cards!
As I made my way along the lane the rain stayed off and I soon saw a small crowd. Within seconds of reaching the line of birders, my first Melodious Warbler was sighted and its beautiful song was heard for the first time. A lifer for me and also the third lifer since last weekend.
