Marsh Warbler at Hen Reedbeds
On Thursday 9th June, I parked checked underneath the corrugated iron nothing, walked around the path by the river wall past the platforms, then past the first and second hides and a path leading inland to the third hide saw Matt Deans and the other birder. We were on the bend before the third hide, by some scrub, we saw a Sedge Warbler by a bramble bush and this bird regularly returned here and then we saw the fine Marsh Warbler, it flew from the redeemed and sang from the reeds bordering a dyke showing reasonably well. A Barn Owl took a Herring Gull chick and one of the parents harried the Owl but still the Owl wouldn't let go. Another Owl hunting by the river too.
