Delighted to say I saw a couple of Dartford Warblers in the heather in Hangmoor Hill, just the other side of Red Road in Lightwater.
How did I recognise them, since they’re on the Amber List of endangered birds? Well, they are known to inhabit this area. They like heaths, and feed of insects. They can be seen on top of gorse bushes, and seen flitting around in the heather looking for insects. What really identifies them is their long tail and habit, that’s how I recognised the pair. Did I see their colour? no I didn’t. Even though they were close to me, all I saw was they appearing dark brownish/grey to me. Photo courtesy of Dean Eades BirdMad in Wikipedia.
