Tony,

reference out chat today about the relative lack of warblers, I think I know where they all are: the East India Dock reserve. Was down there later on today, and you almost have to use a swatter to beat off the Blackcaps, Whitethroats, and Lesser Whitethroats. Also nothced up Reed, Sedge, and Garden Warblers (last heard only).
