Reed Warbler at 'The Arms' Little Cressingham. A very late spring migrant.

An early morning walk with my dog Toby near 'The Arms', Little Cressingham, produced a singing Reed Warbler in a roadside hedgerow, a habitat where this species is not generally encountered at this time of year. 
Reed Warblers generally arrive in Norfolk in the latter half of April and into May, with some continuing to pass through in the early part of June.  The presence of this Reed Warbler today demonstrates the prolonged period of passage this species undertakes in spring and I would say that this bird was at the extreme end of this movement.
