Warnham Local Nature Reserve

Warnham LNR
A heavy frost greeted us this morning which resulted in a very misty start which prevented us from doing much in the way of visible migration over head. On the millpond the usual suspects were in evidence with the addition of our first Pochard of the autumn or dare I say winter! At least three Kingfishers were buzzing around the lake and all of them seemed to be juveniles which is odd for this time of year.

The highlight of the day was a CETTI'S WARBLER which flew across from the dam wall to the Tern Hide Scrape and showed briefly before skulking off into the thicker reeds. This is our first record on the site since 2009 which is incredible considering the string of mild winters we have had of late. Coverage on the Reserve was fairly low today so there is little else to add.
