Weather harsh, Warbler................Marsh.
Hoping to get the daily double up on Saturday morning John (Howdon Blogger) and i heard the first Marsh Warbler at Big Waters around 6.45a.m. We were entertained by displaying Great Crested Grebes and feeding Tree Sparrows as we waited in vain for the bird to appear.
The return to Big Waters brought us improving conditions. More Marsh Warbler song, this fella didn't quite have the same variety as the Hadston Bird, but still no show. While sitting with John and Graeme B. enjoying the song all three of us as one gave up a cheer as one of the Great Crested Grebes presented the other with some weed and both birds lifted out of the water momentarily. With the sun shining more and more we decided to explore a couple of ponds and had lots of Damselflies many in tandem, ovipositing and a few in wheels. Heading back to the car park we all stopped in our tracks and fell silent. Cameras were raised and images captured.
