A walk round the pond.
We wanted to identify this little bird – it was so tiny and hard to spot in the fir trees. Such a loud alarm call for a tiny bird.
Even harder to find with my phone, look at the top of the video and it will come into view
We searched the free App ‘Chirp’, I have on my phone, once we were away from the bird. (we should not play recorded birdsong near birds as it confuses them) The nearest we found was the Willow Warbler and the Chiff Chaff, but ‘Chirp’ did not have their alarm calls
So I looked on You Tube and we found this clip
We think it is a Chiff Chaff, what do you think?
After a glorious gentle summer’s day in the sunshine, a last wander before bed
Good night. 🙂
