Birding Advent Calendar - 14th December
Early May and a long weekend in Latvia. Not quite "baltic" although there was still a chill in the air. Walking around the small local reserve I had a reeling locustella, a scan of the reedbed revealed the source to be Savi's Warbler. One bird became two, then three and at times four birds in a hormone-fueled "reel-off"! They kept a little distant for photos and the sun was very much from the side and very harsh, but I managed some "artistic" shots in the end.
