'Siberian' type Chiffchaff at Hartshill Sewage works.

Thursday 27th February 2014
A few images of the possible Siberian Chiffchaff on the river Anker near Hartshill. Opinions vary as to whether the two birds present today are in fact Siberian Chiffchaff or just pale intergrades. Visually the birds are very similar to the Siberian Chiffchaff identified at Ladywalk Nature reserve last year but the all important calls sounded to me very similar to those of a normal Chiffchaff. Having said that, my hearing and knowledge of bird calls leave a good deal to be desired so I will have leave it to others to make the definitive decision.
