We could hear it from 50m away and it only took a few moments to get cracking views. Question was would the views translate into a bird in the open rather than a skulker behind branches?
There's the answer - it was a little show off!
What are all those people doing stood there looking this way?
Singing its heart out!
Then occasionally perched in a 'hole' though the branches....
If you could find it!
As showy as they come!
A chance find down a bridleway opposite Marsh Lane, it makes you wonder how many other could be lurking as yet undetected??
Unbridled, unfettered, unchained even - cue for a song? Sorry Sam Cook, Elvis, The Righteous Brothers and all the other versions - my vote goes to Ann Wilson of Heart blasting out this timeless song...
Watch your glass when she hits the high note.....
