Birding Advent Calendar - 3rd December - Marsh Warbler

This fantastically vocal Marsh Warbler took up residence for a few days along the Nar Valley Way in Narborough, Norfolk last June. As always with Marshies the mimicry of its song was incredible. I recognised Chaffinch, Great Tit, Blue Tit, Swallow, Nuthatch, a very convincing blast of Blackcap, Reed and Sedge Warbler and even mewing Buzzard. A 4am start and devoured by midges but well worth it.

And of course, an obligatory video!
