Thorpe St Andrew Marshes - Warblers In Abundance!

I decided to take advantage of the fine weather and have a stroll around the marshes before lunch. The reserve was absolutely alive with birdsong. There seemed to be warblers everywhere!

Last year almost unbelievably I failed to see a single Blackcap, today I saw two. One near the footbridge, the other on Bungalow Lane. Also seen in abundance were Common Whitethroat, Sedge and Reed Warblers, and Reed Buntings.

I heard my first Cuckoo of the year calling out from the Bungalow Lane area. Also of note were the large number of Orange Tip Butterflies fluttering over the Marsh.
