Grasshopper Warbler @ Nantmel Tip

A single bird seen well in the reedy area down the bottom end. Also seen 3 Whitethroat, a number of Willow Warbler (including a singing bird) and a few Chiffchaffs. Also heard a Willow Tit and as dusk fell, around 50 Pied wagtails came into the reeds in small groups to roost.

    I saw it from the public footpath about 50m before you go over the style towards the river. It wasnt reeling, just sat on the meadowsweet scolding me with a ‘tick,tick’ call. Dont often see them so well.

    No wonder I didn’t see it Steve ….I was concentrating on where I have sighted and heard it previously L.H.S. 100 metres past main gate. ( naughty)!
