Great Reed Warbler: Great Garden Tick!

Am currently guiding trips from dawn until dusk at this time of year, so very little time to update these pages - but you can keep up to date with day-to-day news on our Facebook page. Last Sunday, I stepped outside and was amazed to hear a singing male Great Reed Warbler in our garden - a superb garden and patch tick! The bird gave Michelle and I good views from the house but with the cameras in the van, the bird stayed deep in cover when I attempted to photograph it. However, it continued to 'sing' in short bursts so I at least managed a few decent sound recordings before having to meet our pho-tour group and head over to Mousa!
