Cisticola Central

Before going to The Cut last Monday, BLEG visited the northern end of Jones Bay. As we quietly and slowly walked along the track beside the bay, we began to hear a fair bit of "bhztt"ing and "lek"ing coming from the tussocks growing in the twenty metres or so from the waters edge. Several of us carefully walked through the tussocks and then the Golden-headed Cisticolas started to appear, perching on elevated reeds and fences. Sufficient birds appeared for long enough to enable all photographers to fill their camera cards. The total number of birds was estimated at 38 over three hundred metres!
