The "reel" deal

A quick posting of an obliging grasshopper warbler, one of three "reeling" this morning. Photographed at Arcot Pond this morning, I've a nice portfolio of images to work with...


...but the other images will be processed later, there's a wayward wagtail to chase first... more on that later!


As always, click the image for a bigger, sharper version.

Also at Arcot was a yaffling green woodpecker, lesser whitethroat, sand martin, chiffchaff and willow warbler

Wow, thanks Gary! More to come, the wagtail got me back out (and wet) again today...

Amazing gropper views, why isn't singing from deepest cover like they normally do?
