Willow and Cettis Warblers

The stormy weather calmed enough this morning to try recording some of the great range of bird song at the moment. The viewpoint at Castle Water offered a little shelter, so I sat and listened to a freshly arrived willow warbler singing repeatedly, while the loud burst of the resident Cettis warbler sounded out at 5 sec and again at 1 min 10sec. There is the background chatter of reed warblers and the occasional woodpigeon, herring gull and coot.
