This morning, so far, i've only seen one migrant in the garden, it was a female Blackcap, possibly, one photo to show later.. if its ok..

I'll check the garden from time to time as the day goes on..

Hopefully the Warbler is still around..

george..

UPDATE..

I got stunning photos of the Barred Warbler a short time ago.. [1025]

And a small darkish brown bird darted into the honeysuckle, but did'nt get its photo..

Yes, I will be Tracy, but not sure where to go..

UPDATE.. The Barred Warbler is still frequenting my garden.. I took a few photos of it, about 5 mins. ago, then it flew to my Sycamore tree..

You are so lucky to see so many warblers and know what they are too!  I like the barred warbler the best.  Lovely to see one - never have seen one down here. :o
