Weather: Cold cloudy Occasional showers, Wind: SSW 9mph 

A feeling of deja vu  when the news spread that a Siberian Chiffchaff ( phylloscopus tristis) had been seen on the nature trail, This time last week birders from near and far were trying to obtain fleeting glimpses of a Yellow Browed Warbler today was a chilly grey November afternoon  totally different from last Fridays Warm sunny weather, 

As predicted by one of the Lighthouse regulars and mentioned in Sundays blog a Siberian Chiffchaff was seen between 1-30pm and 3-30pm the fourth consecutive year that we've had one in the nature trail area
Like with the yellow Browed Warbler, Goldcrest's and tits Herald their arrival and patience is needed as well as a keen eye and ear with Tristis call a flat PEEP compared to the Collybita HWEET call 
hopefully the Sibe Chiff will remain in the area for a few days some over winter in the UK .
