Melodious Warbler: Today I finally caught up with the west mids Melodious Warbler, this bird has been in the same area for ages now, but between my wedding photography shoots and work I simply haven't had the time to go down.

And after yesterdays Saltholme Squacco dip it was good to add a new bird to my growing list.

This was my first Melodious but when observed closely the first thing I noticed was it's large heavy set bill and its supercilium more prominent in front of its bill, nice little bird overall.

It was good to bump in to Andy Ingham while there too, I hope he got a better pic then I did!
