Greenish Warbler

A fairly local twitch this morning for my 226th UK species.

Info picked up via a local area birding group and directions took me and a companion directly to the bird where half a dozen local birders were already on to it.

Although it was calling it tended to sit somewhere in the dense canopy and with fast moving dark clouds above it meant that when it did show it was mostly in silhouette through the bins, the scope gave slightly better detail. However after 30 minutes or so it did play ball and started to sit out in the open to sing, even if it was a little flighty.






 
The Warbler then came down close to feed from the scrub area beneath the trees giving fantastic views, no images I`m afraid as it flitted in and out of dense vegetation.
 
The Golf course green keeper had kindly let the twitchers cross the fairway in groups of three to get closer looks...... we patiently await our turn as these fellas enjoy the close up views.
