Dartford Warbler

Hello all,
Yet more rare birds are being ticked off this year, and the latest is a Dartford Wabler. On Friday, I saw a pair in the scrub and heath like bushes opposite houses on Sand Road, by Sand point and Sand Bay, near Wetson Super Mare. It is thought that they are immatures, first winter. This is because adults are generally more picky as to where they reside,but this is metres away from a path used daily by dog walkers, runners and anyone! Dartford Warblers have plenty of character, and are obvious and dark in flight, with flitting movement.
This pair have been at Sand Bay for some time, and it was good to catch up with them!
