Dartford Warbler

I just managed one half decent shot of A Dartford Warbler on a cold walk this afternoon at Morden Bog near where I live.

They don't occur in Dartford (and haven't done for about a century!) - it's all far too built up there now.

Lots of places they're fairly easy to see, the Surrey heaths are probably the closest for you.
