8th February - Sightings

Ladywalk - Lesser-Spotted Woodpecker, Jack Snipe, Mealy Redpoll still (J Allen, D Hutton et al) Also Siberian Chiffchaff (ringed) today and heard to call like a Siberian (J Allen, D Hutton)
Dosthill(Warks) - 2 Long-Tailed Duck still (Mik Clarke)

Alan Dean comments - "Unless someone hears any ‘adverse’ call, it seems reasonable now to regard the ringed bird as ‘fulvescens’ (i.e. westerly form of tristis, which do have some ‘additional’ olive and yellow)."
