Another warbler.

Yesterday morning I heard a Lesser Whitethroat singing in a bramble adjacent to the previous days Reed Warbler location...again somewhat unusual for the spit. Today as I was walking back along the beach a warbler flew up from virtually under my feet and landed about 4m in front of me. I only had my p.a.s. camera with me and always find that birds out of their normal habitat tend to throw me!

What do you say this is?

Further along the beach I found a Ringed Plover sitting on a 'nest'..the first one I have seen this year on the beach. Closer inspection revealed a single egg on the shingle...hardly a nest!!
