Durlston warblers

Matt Jones and I arrived at a very warm and sunny Durslton at about 0730 and almost immediately started seeing some of the many migrant warblers present this morning. Willow Warbler (pictured) undoubtedly topped the list - apparently 78 wre ringed this morning, and we must have seen a similar number around the Country Park, along with many Whitethroat, several Lesser Whitethroat, plus one or two of Chiffchaff, Sedge Warbler, Dartford Warbler, Garden Warbler and Blackcap. Matt also saw two Grasshopper Warbler which I managed to miss, and not even Hamish Murray's arrival could help me locate another. 5 Redstart were also seen.
