15th-17th January 2013

Spent the last few days either at Ladywalk or nearby Edison Rd trying for the Siberian Chiffchaff/s & the Firecrest!! Good views of both birds but no photographs due to various reasons infact the 16th didn't see either bird so spent a few hrs photographing Common Chiffchaff in -2.5 deg conditions,however finally on the 17th I managed to get photos of not 1 Siberian but 2 Siberian Chiffchaffs (Both calling & neither ringed so with the bird seen on Sunday which was ringed this makes 3 in the area!!) Also had the Firecrest showing well but briefly allowing a cpl of shots!!
