Sedge warbler

In 2011 I first picked up a sedge warbler just south of Hest Bank on the canal bank in the brambles opposite the moorings. Except for 2017, I have found one there every year since.

Today I found one adult moving around close to the Hest Bank end of the brambles, but then, at the far end towards Raikes Bridge, there was an adult collecting food along the edge of the water and dashing back in (BTO code FF). I suspect these are two separate nesting attempts, but not confirmed.

The real surprise was that I found another sedge warbler in the hedgerow down Raikes Bridge Lane along the section by the railway line. A dog walker told me that he had been seeing that bird for a while, so it sounds as if it may be a breeding attempt away from the canal.
