Zitting Cisticola

© Chris Orders

The scene at 7.00am at Pegwell bay Country Park, near Ramsgate. All viewing the Zitting Cisticola ( Fan-tailed Warbler) as it flitted intermittently along the fringes of the salt marsh. Although this Warbler has been present for some time, it is now making regular daily visits , especially in the early morning, to the areas surrounding the hide nearest to the park's main car park. Great Northern Diver. On returning from Kent we dropped in at Grafham waters to view the Three Northern Divers and the single Black-throated Diver. Oddly the Black-throated Diver and one of the Northern Divers formed a diving pair removing themselves from the other Divers. This gave a good opportunity to compare the ID characteristics of the two species

The Big Dip

The Leas, South Shields
In this Quarry our Quarry (the Eastern Crowned Warbler) was present the day before. But unfortunately on our arrival the Twitch was rapidly diminishing whilst the Warbler was, no doubt, on its way back to Sunny Shanghai.
The 417 miles round trip was not, however, a complete waste. A visit to Port Clarence, Cleveland on the way home revealed a Blue-winged Teal---a lifer which had eluded me for some time.
