Richards Pipit

Found at Leasowe by the Wirrals premier Richards Pipit finder Mr A C.
Flight views only as its lurking in the long grass.

Virtually annual now on the north Wirral coast and follows on from one on Hilbre last month.

More on my controlled Long-tailed Tit caught in the garden at the weekend. It was ringed in Birkenhead on 13th October 2010 so its travelled around 18 km. The spooky thing is it was ringed by the same person who ringed the first control I caught on Hilbre. Yes, you've guessed it. Another Long-tailed Tit. Spooky or what!
