Work ethic out the window. Bluethroat at St Mary's ....magic. Pitched up late morning and was greeted by Brian R and Alan J who directed me to the second mound. Walked up and there she was surrounded by a dozen folk just twenty feet away. Brief views through grass it disappeared into the undergrowth to re-appear on the path ten minutes later but was flushed by a manic dog, Eventually showed in the bushes and dropped back down onto the path where I had positioned myself at the north end and the beauty just hopped up the path as had been described to me by others present..
No zoom necessary I had to play the statue as the bird worked its way past me no more than two foot distant.
