It’s not the collective noun for a mixed group of Willow warblers and Chiffchaffs , but a ‘flit’ seems to describe it pretty well so I’m going with that. For the third consequtive Sunday now we’ve had a small
flock flit of these lovely little migrants descend on the garden shrubs – always on the go, calling to each other and searching out insects in amongst the meadowsweet, the rowan and the buddliea. I took about a million shots and this was the best of the bunch – they don’t really do posing quietly for the camera! They are all steadily making their way to the coast before heading out across the sea on their migration to warmer climes for the Winter.
Good luck to each and every one of them. I know I will be listening out for them next Spring as they herald the onset of warmer weather ahead.
