Cetti's Warbler

Heysham Obs
One calling fairly regularly and showing intermittently in the osier bed next to the dipping pond at Heysham NR.  Only readily viewable from a wet uneven track with tripping hazards so access not recommended and certainly at your own risk.  This posting is for info only, not to encourage people to 'twitch' a species which is available nearby at Leighton Moss.  The first winter record for here following three from Heysham and Middleton last autumn and three previous all-time records

Two Water Rail, Coal Tit, 2 Mallard, 2 Bullfinch best of the rest on NR circuit

Cetti's showed very well and called a lot (no song) later in the afternoon and its ringed on the right leg
