Pallas's Warbler (Dan Lombard)

More blustery north-easterlies and finally a rare Sibe to show for it today (with apologies to the couple of dozen Yellow-brows so far this autumn), when a Pallas’s Warbler briefly appeared on the south side of Arndale (DL, MR, CB). A Black Redstart and two Egyptian Geese were at the Tip (MJP), and the first day of ringing week was illuminated by the surprise capture of a Short-eared Owl. (More totals to follow tomorrow).
