Where's that Warbler?

A visit to Astley Moss recently meant I got to see a lot of the usual farmland birds. There were Tree Sparrows and Yellowhammers aplenty, and some of the summer migrant warblers too. The song of the Willow Warbler is nice to hear, but they're not always that easy to see. I find that once I've located them I have to second guess where they are going to move to next. Which branch? Up or down? Left or right? Thankfully the trees were not in full leaf and made my life a little easier.

The Common Whitethroat is another bird that doesn't make life easy for you. You can hear it, but not always see it. Then just as you think you're about to lay eyes on it, there it goes, further away than before.

Common Whitethroat, this time playing nicely.


Willow Warbler, before moving off again.

  6. Fantastic shots of these warblers, Adam. I should have seen the Common Whitethroat while living in East Africa, but didn't. I have heard the Willow Warbler in our garden until recently! They are difficult to pin down. So thanks for sharing. Greetings Jo

  7. You're right Adam. Capturing our warblers is never easy. Nice work though, especially the Whitethroat.

  11. They're so sweet -- and it is amazing how they sit still for you ... you have great bird Karma (and/or wonderful patience) and definitely wonderful photography skills.
