A morning check of the patch before college yielded a reeling Grasshopper Warbler in an unexpected place. I was having a mosey around the small wood by Legal & General for Wood Warbler when I heard the characteristic monotonous trill coming from the woodland edge. I staked it out for about forty five minutes but couldn't see it (it was raining on and off quite a bit). It seemed to be coming from a very small patch of brambles. Hopefully it will remain till at least tomorrow and show off a bit more.
