Western Bonelli's Warbler

a very very long overdue first for Lincolnshire and a clearly Western bird in spite of the bird media messages; the song was identical to Western on the Collins Guide and the calls, repeated for almost 5 minutes at one point were also perfect for Western; really active bird usually in dense bushes and foliage and so quick that it was difficult to get onto so record shots but nice bird to get to grips with -- thanks Kev -- got some recordings of call and song on the iphone but not had time to do anything with them yet
