Lesser is more

No 98 on the Prestwick Carr list was found on Sunday but couldn't get any pics of the elusive Lesser Whitethroat singing in Blackthorn near the turning onto the Carr from Horton Grange Road. Sedge Warblers however are far more gregarious as the pics indicate.

Also on Sunday after a webs count that was almost a no count I was sitting at the traffic lights for the roundabout near B & Q in Scotswood and heard a Lesser Whitethroat in the bushes next to where the snack van parks. Stopped and checked it out but again no visual and such a strange place to choose amongst all the din from the traffic.

Two other Lesser Whitethroat sightings for me this month both west of Horsley village next to the A69. Maybe they like singing against the traffic noise!
