Took the opportunity on Thursday to have a look at the Marsh Warbler that had turned up at Hadston the bird showed straight away coming to the top of the reeds a couple of times and apparently it had been sitting on top of the Sycamores before I got there,but I failed to find it in the camera viewfinder as it would not stay still long enough in the tall reeds, I got a few short recordings of its extensive song repertoire which I have had to join together as there was a lot of background noise , by 12pm it was less active and the day was getting colder , so I headed to the Hauxley Reserve nicknamed the Goose Farm an apt name today several large broods of Greylag's at the Ponteland hide , two Little Egrets also here and a couple of Dunlin and Redshank. Walked along to the Tern hide and the view was mostly of Geese , with a couple of Lapwing chicks on the waters edge, so it was back to the Ponteland hide no sign of the Egrets but did see a Heron get a very large Eel, no further sign of the marsh Warbler for me or a few others that day .
Edit : it seems the bird is still showing very well and everyone is getting some good photos of the bird .......looks like another visit is in order !!!!
I have been having major problems with Blogger of late ,it won't let me upload videos , this has taken several attempts , having to greatly reduce the quality /size was the only way to achieve it ,despite there being no real limit to size.
