Wheldrake Warblings

I was out after work today and as there had been no news on any Terns or anything at Hes East I thought I’d check out Wheldrake Ings, haven't been down there for a while, it was relatively quiet although there were plenty of Warblers about including my first Reed, Sedge and Whitethroats of the year, not many Hirundines though surprisingly. A lone Whooper Swan on Swantail Ings was probably a sick or injured bird and a Greenshank and Redshank graced the scrape there with two Whimbrels dropping in briefly late afternoon before moving into the field behind the Hide, the only other thing of note was a distant Buzzard over the woods.
Willow Warbler, the only one that posed

a few Butterflies were about including this Green Veined White
