Savi's Warbler

After pretty much non-existent views of the Savi's Warbler on Thursday night (although it was heard really well!) I got up early and headed back to Old Moor RSPB car park in the hope that the bird may show well (at all!).

There was quite a few people again today, we all wandered down to the back end of the reserve and waited for the bird to sing, we didn't have to wait long before it was singing away. A brief view was had as the bird flitted between the two sides of the ditch it seems to favour, eventually after some more singing and some more ranging up and down the ditch the bird eventually gave itself up singing low in the reeds and showing well and many people managed to see it well. The bird appeared to be ranging further up and down the ditch as time passed by but as the sun went behind the cloud and the wind picked up the warbler was becoming more and more difficult to see so I decided to go for some breakfast!

Both Reed and Sedge Warbler were also present in the reedbed singing away.
