A Great Reed Warbler was discovered singing at a Nottinghamshire Wildlife Trust Reserve, near Besthorpe. The bird was faithful to a small reed bed that could be viewed from a public footpath running alongside it.

It was discovered on the 30th May, so I decided I had better go and see it. I’ve seen 9 previous individuals of this rare vagrant from Europe, including 2 in Derbyshire. Their song is stunning, a loud, coarse and repetitive “crek, crek, crek, kreek,kreek” and often you hear the song before you see the bird. So glad I made the effort last night, 4th June 2021, to go and see it.
