09/05/2012 Martin Mere WWT

Reed Warbler: An early morning at Martin Mere before the rains came relieved two new spring arrivals. Starting from the Reed Bed Walk, with the sun on my back I had to take my coat off, uplifting and enjoyable.

Whitethroat: Further along the walk near the kissing gates next to the United Utilities building I found myself surrounded by Whitethroat and it was here I caught a sighting of my first 2012 Swift flying high over towards the farm.

I was not only surrounded by Whitethroat, I was also surrounded by swarms of flies, no wonder it was a hot spot for theses very active warblers.

I then headed back to Martin Mere where I was treated to more Sedge Warbler, Balckcap and the regular gang of garden birds.
