This Sedge has the edge.

One of my favourite summer migrants, the Sedge Warbler is a very dapper little bird with a very attractive and complex song.

And when you pass a bramble patch or heavy vegetation and hear their alarm call '' chirring '' its very unlikely that you will get the opportunity to see them, they do not show themselves lightly, but when they do ...... magical.

This guy did me a real favour and displayed in very good light, letting the world know that he is very much present and correct.     



  1. A firm favourite of mine. So glad some have returned in better numbers to my patch this year. I had one solitary bird last year on my patch:-(

    1. Real characters Doug, nice to hear that your local patches have a better head count this year.
