A very early morning start paid off with lots of singing sedge warblers at the Sluice and a grasshopper warbler reeling away nearby. The latter very interesting since they are quite rare but I have heard them here before and it may possibly stay to breed. I also saw a fine male ring ouzel perched up on a bush (this is the species that brought crowds here last week, but I had this one to myself) – this bird will be heading north to the Pennines or Scotland.
