Colour Ringed Wood Warbler.

I was heading off to a new area of timber, passing last weeks Wood Warbler site and then passing another singing Wood Warbler, which I had a quick look at. 

I carried along the trail, down through a new trail and another 2 Wood Warblers singing. I decided to stop and try and get some shots but the light was poor and the individual wasn't that showy. 

I decided to cut my losses and move on. I packed the camera away, packed the bag and just at that point the Wood Warbler came in so I thought I would bin it before moving on and then I could see 2 green colour rings on the left leg! that put pay to the plans as I knew I had to see the bird better and nail the colour ring combination. 2.5 hours later I finally got the combo and the photo to clinch it and then I was on my way.
