Dip Farm early am
On Thursday 2nd June, I arrived at Dip Farm, on a dull windy morning at 6.50am and it was immediately apparent that the Greenish Warbler was singing, it was like a Willow Warbler attempting a Cetti's Warbler song and immediately pointed to the bird being around the middle hawthorn area. Indeed it briefly appeared for 2-3 seconds by the bare branches again but all too quickly it flitted off and eluded the camera again. It then spent the entire time zipping around between the middle here and the extreme east end of the hedge line. By another hawthorne area, it showed near the ground for a few seconds underneath the fence line showing its whitish supercilia again. It was constantly singing so easy to locate but it was extremely difficult to even get a glimpse of it.
