By Jove, I think I've got it !

Contrary to the weather forecast the light was generally good throughout today, but the most illuminating part of the day was this Cettis Warbler that decided to show having spent a considerable amount of time calling from numerous positions in the reed beds surrounding the South Hide at Titchmarsh LNR, heard but rarely seen.

After hours of observation I think I have a good understanding of the range of this birds territory and also the positions from which it calls, I also recognise its individual call.

Sure enough, whilst in the reed beds it called and moved, called and moved, called and moved  ( am I boring you ? ) and at last perched in a bramble patch that is a favourite display site.

What a treat, there can't be many better experiences.
