Took a trip up the M1 to Ilkeston, Derbys. to have a look at the 'showy' Great Reed Warbler at Straw's Bridge ponds just outside the town. Well, it might have showed well yesterday and it might have showed well before I got there but it sure didnt show well during the several hours I was there. It flew about a bit and sang alot but rarely showed. Apart from when it flew it only climbed up the reeds once when I took a few photos. Most of the time it stayed low and deep in cover in a small reedbed.
