Sunday 2nd November 2014

Weather; Warm, sunny spells early then cloud.  Wind S F 3.

The Siberian Chiffchaff, (see blog entry of 31/10), was well seen again today near Leasowe lighthouse and was also heard to call several times, the call exactly matching that of the Tristis race, a piping 'peep'. This, together with all the plumage features observed, firms up it's identity completely. The bird frequented the inland path immediately to the south of the duck pond known as 'Scat alley'. It has previously also been seen around the pond itself.

Other birds seen today in the lighthouse area included 2 Teal, a Greenshank, 35 Blackbirds, 7 Song Thrushes, 5 Redwings, a Bullfinch and a Siskin.  Observer AMC.
