On several tours recently we have come across singing Garden Warblers. Someone asked me why they are so scarce. Well the truth is I don’t think they are. The song is very similar to Blackcap and I’m sure many get ‘written off’ as that species. In addition it is a rather crepuscular species not prone to sitting out much. So when it stops singing in a month or so it does become a little more difficult to find. In fact later in the season it’s one of those birds that tends to find you. Not known for it’s bright colours or features; it’s a warbler identified by the fact it has nothing to distinguish it. Cracking little singer though!
