    Strangely, some Warbler species that are usually very evident by their song but very difficult to see were confidently showing themselves today. I think this may be because they are feeding and protecting newly fledged young.

    Reed Warbler:

    And another:

    Yes, I have several shots of this bird from different angles and have enhanced and enlarged the rings to send to a colleague who traps and rings birds. He will search the records and let me know where it was ringed - he may actually ringed it himself.
