Willow Warbler

This morning I joined Errol & Davey on a visit to Priory Country Park.

Above: The highlight for me was this juvenile Willow Warbler. This is a species of bird that has declined dramatically over the last decade or so and I don't get many chances to ring them. Thanks to Davey for the photo.

Local birders are starting to report an increase in sightings, meaning that Willow Warblers are beginning their migration out of the country.
