Dartfords Again!

Went to the local Dartford Warbler hot-spot again this morning but had better views of the birds than I could ever have imagined!! We saw a total of 8 birds (yes 8!!!) in a spot which is relatively small in heathland terms. All but 1 of these birds were male, which probably means the females were remaining hidden which could put the figure of birds on site nearer the 15 mark. I can't put into words the incredible views we had of the birds, but hopefully the photos below give an idea of how well the birds showed and just how close they were!!

Other birds seen today include Redwing, Stonechat, Skylark.
