A surprise from Dewsbury…

John Tordoff had a nice surprise this morning on his visit to Dewsbury country park. He heard a warbler that caught his attention and he recorded the bird which was in full song. The bird turned out to be a Garden Warbler! Interestingly it’s Latin name is Sylvia borin. With borin given as it’s name due to it’s plain plumage. However, it’s song is beautiful and far from boring…

Whilst Dewsbury country park is not in our recording area the sighting is of real interest. Dewsbury is not that far away from TH Beck so who knows it might appear in our area like it use to do back in the 1980s.

Thanks John for your sighting.
