Grasshopper Warbler

Thanks to Richard and Trevor I managed to see a bird that I haven't seen for some time. The Grasshopper Warbler behind the stable at the north wall of Pagham harbour was an easy spot. I arrived at 0600 and because of Trevor's description of the location heard it straight away, patience was required before it came within range to provide an adequate record shot. Unusually it reeled almost constantly for an hour.

 All in all a satisfactory outcome - thanks for the spot.  Returned home before the heat really got going - not a cloud in the sky!!!

For the record the rest of the harbour looked very quiet indeed - more fish to be seen on Breech Pool than birds.
