There'a plenty of new life out and about this month - we have seen young ducklings, goslings, Long-tailed Tits, Moorhen and Song Thrushes.
Following on from the previous blog note we find there's always some hope to be found. Revisiting the reedbed area a few days ago we encountered fewer breeding birds than usual. Hardly surprisingly since an estimated 30% went up in flames. We then visited a different part of the Reedbeds. Slightly more active with birdsong. We spotted a darker Warbler and suspected that we had found a Reed Warbler. Frustratingly we didn't see it again so we returned the following day and secured a picture. Reed Warbler is presently colonising the Tay reedbeds but, at the moment, it is heavily outnumbered by the less fussy Sedge Warbler. A real find - the first we have seen locally.
