Wren fighting with Cetti's Warbler. At 07.30 GMT on 9th August 1987, at Abbey Mead Lake, Newhythe, Kent, I noticed a Wren Troglodytes troglodytes and a Cetti's Warbler Cettia cetti fighting on the ground. They were locked in battle, and I came to within 5 m of them before they went their separate ways. R. J. PARKER 48 Heron Road, Larkfield, Maidstone, Kent ME20 6JH ID. T. Ireland has commented
