8 Jun 2011 - Marsh Warbler

I headed off into West Norfolk to look at a Marsh Warbler that I'd been told about which had been showing well in suitable breeding territory. Soon after I arrived at the site the bird burst into song and I was treated to a cacophony of mimicry by this fine songster. Call and song notes from Common Tern, Great Spotted Woodpecker (both the 'peek' call and the rambling alarm call), Barn Swallow, Sand Martin, Goldfinch, Linnet, Sedge Warbler, Bee-eater, Common Swift, Blackbird and Common Whitethroat were all heard in the birds song.
