Massive, Noisy Birds

On Wednesday we visited a trusty old location with disappointing results.  Numbers of Sedge Warblers were holding up, but there were fewer Reed warblers.  The Cuckoo was also more elusive than during years of yore.  It was heard very faintly in the afternoon, and more clearly in the afternoon when it was glimpsed with the incongruous background of a new wind turbine installation.  Despite the apparent paucity of birds heard or seen, we did record 39 species before lunch.
