Ok, just had a message from Stuart Derbyshire saying it was he who saw (and indeed heard) the Barred Warbler this morning at about 07.30. There are indeed some dead trees with distinctive coloured rope on them! Not far from the gate, apparently. I obviously didn't look far enough!

To add to Jon's post Derek Stacey tells me the "trees with coloured ropes" are actually part of an art display - four sticks with coloured ropes around them - I think he said c50m from the gate.
