On the first day of a three-day camping trip in the New Forest I came across this little beauty, just yards from the camp site.
About half way through the clip it gives a burst of its very distinctive song - a piercing trill.
Then it was joined by a second bird, presumably a female, that did not sing but kept calling repeatedly.
Nearby was a rather alarming insect that I now know, thanks to Twitter, is a cranefly called Ctenophora flaveolata.
Later, on the way to the pub, I found this male Dartford warbler posing in the late sun.
