River Warbler Locostella fluviatilis

Asst. Warden Jason Moss refinds the River Warbler... The bird was caught, ringed & released.

I thought the River Warbler would of had much bolder undertail coverts stripes? This bird had lost quite a few tail feathers, it might have to stay around a bit longer and grow them back? Usually  River Warblers are quite sculky. We will be lucky to see it again as it went 10 days since it's last sighting, somehow not showing or found for the FIBO Board Members. ouch!

  2. Interesting, I would have thought it was a bee if you hadn't pointed it out as being a fly.
