Nightingale 4

This was the final nightingale on this walk. In a small area of high poplars, with shrubs and bushes in the undergrowth this piece of land borders a small stream with old trees either side. There are a lot of birds here especially in the spring. I was lucky enough this time to see the bird close up whilst singing. It was at about head hight on the lower benches of a tree. Nightingales nest close to or on the ground in dense shrubs, although often their songs appear to be coming from much higher up in the trees.
