A single Swallow was at Porthloo Duckpond
Walking along the main path at Lower Moors from the Rose Hill end, the Yellow-browed Warbler could be heard with 3-4 Chiffchaff, 2 Blackcap and 2 Woodcock flew out. As I approached the hides, there was a very vocal DUSKY WARBLER. This bird performed very well and while filming it, I could hear the other bird close by. Both birds were observed feeding and calling together and this continued for the next ten minutes that they were on view, before they flew off towards the loop trail. At the same time, there were 2 male Siberian Chiffchaff singing. One was next to the path, while at the same time, I could hear the other male singing in the Black and White Wood. A Swallow was flying around Porthloo Duckpond.
Not great footage, but you can hear both birds together! If you turn it right up, you can just make out one of the Siberian Chiffchaff singing.
This is for those who couldn't hear the Sibe on the Dusky video. As soon as I stopped filming, one of the Dusky Warbler started calling just below the Sibe!
Another Red Admiral was seen enjoying the afternoon sun and there was a Common Marbled Carpet at Lower Moors.. Also got 4 Silver Y and 4 Rusty-dot Pearl were attracted to the outside light at home.
A great live performance of 'Essence' by Lucinda William.
