Dartford Warblers

Sorry all, I failed dismally in my mission to get a decent photo of a Dartford Warbler! I will try again. I got to see a couple of them but couldn’t get a photo (I got one of it’s butt as it flew off and that was all) I did however get some nice buzzard shots and I saw my first ChiffChaff, first Linnet, first Shelducks and first Tree Pipit (Confirmed by RSPB guy – apparently it has something to do with the way the speckles finish half way down it’s chest)
I’ll upload the rest later, off to work now.

Thanks for the comments. The first photo is a chiffchaff, but it was singing away and waving it's wings in a funny way. The second photo is a linnet, I watched a pair going back and forth nest building, the third photo is the elusive warbler (it was sat on the nice tufty bit of gorse on the left when I first saw it - would have made a cracking shot!)
