singing Phylloscs


Chiffchaff

Despite a cool, wet and blustery day, the trans-Saharans continue to trickle back through the patch, with just Swallow still to check in of the expected early spring quartet. Of warblers, Chiffys and Blackcaps have been knocking around for several weeks now, and today produced the first Willow Warblers, with at least three birds singing sweetly despite the rain. More at Hackney Wildlife.
