I walked further and could here a Grasshopper Warbler "reeling" but couldnt see it. Waited about 15 minutes then it appeared at the top of a bramble bush.
Its the first I have seen for a couple of years. Their song is so difficult to hear - its high pitched and fast. Had a quick look for the Cettis Warbler but no sign.
Saw a smashing Stonechat about 15 yards away - posing as usual at the top of a bush.
Then went to Seaton Common to try and find Yellow Wagtail - eventually saw one about 30 yards away but as soon as I got out of the car it took off. Its early yet though
Then to Hurworth Burn - last year it was good for Yellow Wags, but never saw any today, there were lots people and cylists about too. There were loads of Willow Warblers though and Yellowhammers
