Thanks to Rod Key for the following:-
CARSINGTON WATER A singing Marsh Warbler was found by Clive Ashton this morning-10th June-in scrub close to the main buildings by the pathway to Stones Island. Still present at 2.35 p.m. and shows on and off and is singing well giving ample opportunity to listen to this bird mimicking a whole range of species. This is only the 6th county record and the first since 1 at Pools Brook Marsh in June 2009 which was seen to be taking nesting material into the marsh. Currently other singing birds on the East Coast are 1 in Suffolk, 1 at Spurn and 2 at Flamborough Head in Yorkshire. Also here a second summer Yellow Legged Gull.
