First for us today a Black Tern at Top Hill Low seen from the North Hide on the 'D' Reservoir distant but nice to record a first sighting. Record shot only.
Top Hill was full of bird song and I was pleased to get shots of Sedge and Reed warblers.
The Sedge Warbler was taken in a shower and streaks of rain and a water droplet can be seen on the back of the birds neck. After hearing many Sedges it was nice to get one in the open.
The Reed Warblers are really elusive there are a lot at Top Hill but again you do not see them often. I like the siting of this bird in a tree with full of catkins although a little to distant. The birds were usually out of sight at the bottom of the reed bed on the few occasions they showed on a swaying reed stem they were away before I could focus.
