has seen Curlew Sandpiper Church Street, England, United Kingdom
This Curlew Sandpiper (right) was among a flock of around 80 Dunlin roosting at high tide along the River Thames a few days ago. A nice surprise.

Only ever see them in Autumn up this way. Nice catch.

Me too, this is the first one I remember seeing in Spring.

has seen Cetti's Warbler Purfleet-on-Thames, England, United Kingdom
Usually Cetti's Warbler is annoyingly difficult to see despite being a really noisy bird. Lucky for me this one decided to take a break on a fence post.

Difficult bird to photograph 👍
Nick Upton
Indeed, it was there for just about 20 seconds. I got lucky.
Martin Gathercole
Agree, have heard at least 8-9 in the last week but no clear shots, good one!
Nick Upton
Yes, most of my shots in the past have been of very obscured birds.
Hans van Kersbergen
Good shot Nick. Nice bird. In Holland there's a explosion of these Cetti's. In my area also many birds also in wintertime , loud singing but difficult to see. ( to photograph )
Nick Upton
There seems to be a similar population explosion in England too, I am seeing them in lots of places I have never seen them before.
Nick Upton
Like many other people, I have been doing a lot of local birding recently & have found some great birds. I made this video to show people around my local patch in Uk and some of its birds - https://yo...View More

Such a great shot for me it’s heard and never seen maybe one day
Nick Upton
They are hard to photograph. Luckily here they are very abundant so sooner or later one pops up not too far away.

This Corn Bunting was singing in the hedge opposite the house this afternoon. Photo taken from the front garden; lucky to have this red data species so easy to see around us.
