River Ljig just south of Ljig town & Home

The migrants again when I arrived home this afternoon are just fantastic! The Icterine Warbler was very obliging giving just the best views at close range as were the Wood Warblers which were content to feed out in the open on dead wood or catching flies from our power cables.
The Tree Pipits can be heard flying over almost every time I walk out the door, 2 were in the trees around the garden.

The Herons at Ljig were feeding on a stretch close to town which is now pretty undisturbed due to the collapse of the riverside walk during the big floods, and hence a lack of walkers.The waders were also on this section.
