PossibleThe bird is not singing at the moment, but I have heard it either side of the jetty. It may still be in there. I need to go and do some work but will be out again at lunchtime. If it sings again I will try and record it.

PossiblePossible singing in reed beds at north end. I am just going to check it out. I work at 200 Brook Drive. Bird was singing near where boats are moored on jetty. Perfect match against U Tube. Its stopped singing for the moment and I haven't seen the bird yet.
