I stopped recently at RSPB Geltsdale, which is in Cumbria, up near Carlisle. I have been a couple of times in the past and it is somewhere I like to stop off when in the area. It is a very nice peaceful place with rolling hills and meadows. Curlews, Willow Warblers and Sedge Warblers could all be heard as I got out of the car. Then there was the unmistakeable song of the Grasshopper Warbler. As it's name suggests, it mimics the sound of a grasshopper. It sounded close. Using the few trees nearby, I skirted round and found it on a fence post singing it's head off.
My best ever views of this bird. Usually it is to be found (or heard) from within tall grass or bushes.
Wonderful shots of a bird normally half-hidden by vegetation.ReplyDelete
What a great series of photos of this grasshopper warbler a bird I have never seen before.
Photo 2 is my favorite.
I love the shots of the Warbler singing, I wish I could hear it sing too.
Great series of photos, a Grasshopper Warbler would be new to me. Thank you for linking up and sharing your post. Take care, have a happy weekend.
Nice series! Can imagine the sound. Every night I hear the Song thrush copying other birds. Wonder why the grashopper warbler copies grasshoppers?ReplyDelete
