Groppers at Langar

Only this week I was telling Pete about my site at Langar and how much it is changing from season to season. It'll be interesting to see how the bird populations change as this young open plantation gradually sees more scrub taking hold and aquatic vegetation spreading from the nearby flooded fishponds (perhaps fewer Whitethroat over time and an increase in Blackcap?)

After five years of watching the site, this morning I heard three reeling Grasshopper Warblers in the scrub for the first time. And guess what the first bird into my net was?
