About to leave local birding swamp in E. Dorset when in fly 2 FOY Yellow Warblers - sunny day, sunny birds, sunny smile!  

Back at home to be greeted by House Wren - who appeared to arrive ready to breed. I first saw/heard him on feeder platform and next thing I knew, he was on fence rail fluttering both wings madly and singing away!  Did he think I was a HOWR???
