Popped up the garden net for an hour this morning in the hope that some of the local blackcaps would oblige and jump into the net. They didn’t appear but another warbler species did. A Chiffchaff. Haven’t seen one near the garden in over a month and the net isn’t near to any likely chiffy hiding places.
I am currently preparing for a weekend in Wales where a Common Yellowthroat has appeared. It’s a rather lovely warbler, which is usually found in America, so one in Gwent is irresistible! Will let you know how I get on.
