Wern Willow Warbler
Heard and saw my first willow warbler of the year this morning, alongside the canal on the Wern - 'singin in the rain'. Also, delighted to see a curlew fly over, calling, and a yellowhammer singing almost it's full phrase several times from an oak - both curlew and yellowhammers used to be common on the Wern, but very rarely see them now. Lifted my spirits on this damp Bank Holiday Monday!
