Doxey Marshes - Gropper

A Sunday morning visit to Doxey Marshes in Staffs, teaming up with the local SOS trip, paid dividends! Whilst everyone was having lunch, Yvonne and myself followed up some 'local info' down the old railway track and found the first of three Grasshopper Warblers of the day - not just reeling but showing well too!!

The harsh backlit situation in which the most showy bird was placed, relegated images to 'record shot' status but I musn't grumble - just seeing a Gropper so well is never guaranteed!!














Two Cuckoos showing well in flight within 200m of the track from Katyn memorial finished the day off nicely.....
