If there was 1 thing I would have to pick that was special about my old patch, this would certainly be it. When I first discovered Wood Warbler on an old tramway track, I couldn't believe what I was hearing. I knew what a Wood Warbler sounded like because it was the theme entry music to BBC Springwatch in 2009. Since then I've fallen in love with that sound! It's infectious and it brings the woodland alive with a burst of energy from high above in the canopy.
These birds are expert insect finders and you'll often see them with small caterpillars, flies and other tree dwelling invertebrates. I even caught 1 male bird today with a fly on its lower mandible while singing... Eating with its mouth open.. how rude.
