THE WILLOW WARBLER.

Early spring and the sound of chiffchaff's and willow warbler's is music to our ears,but as the canopy opens and the vegetation grows these birds seem to melt away and are soon forgotten.I came across a willow warblers nest in the Trough of Bowland not 20yds from the road and on two morning sessions managed to capture a few images of these busy birds as they fed their young,watched for danger and removed the fecal sac's of their young.I've posted a few images of the comings and goings of these charming birds below for your enjoyment.I HOPE THE WEATHER IMPROVES SOON AS A LOT OF BIRDS MUST BE STRUGGILING TO FLEDGE THEIR YOUNG IN THESE CONDITIONS.
