Finger crossed for the Sedge Warbler

The first week in May is always an exciting time in the bird watchers calendar with warblers and other spring migrants reaching their breeding ground or exploring new potential breeding areas. Yesterday morning at the middle pond at Toad holes Beck a male Sedge Warbler was in full song trying to attract a mate as they do most year at this site. However, I only glimpsed him as he was singing deep in cover and left him to it, but I managed to record his lovely song.
