Back to bed ..........
...... well, the reed beds to be precise.
Reed Warblers are at a high level of activity in the reed beds at the moment, flitting about, chasing each other and arguing about territories.
Some birds are still nest building whilst others are feeding their broods.
And they chatter away constantly.
What I have noticed is that on occasions the reed beds suddenly fall silent.
I always look around to see if there is a raptor in the vicinity but have never been able to see one.
Then just as quickly as the silence descended the chattering starts again, very curious.
The South hide at TLNR is slightly elevated which allows you to look down into the beds rather than through them from the side, this greatly assists photography.
