Dartford warbler

April 14, 2014  •  1 Comment

I traveled down to Dorchester a two hour plus journey from my home,and after spending a few hrs at Arne RSPB and only getting brief views of the Dartford warbler I decided it was time to make a move and head to over to  Hartland heath, I parked my car popped upon the boot and straight away I heard two Dartford warbler`s singing all be it hidden and low down in the Gorse,but non the less a great sign I did spend sometime trying to capture some images but the bird`s seemed happiest staying hidden away in the Gorse, I  grabbed my gear and headed over to the other side of the heath where I had also heard some bird`s singing,probably due to the bright sunny and windless weather conditions the high`s would be around 17 degrees very pleasant for April. and it was an absolute pleasure just being there in total peace and quiet,the birds did start to show well and after a while I was able to capture some images of this lovely little warbler my time spent there seemed to go by in a blur and I was soon packing away the gear and heading back to Clevedon North Somerset wishing I had a few more days available to spend on the Heath a truly wonderful place to spend time at.
