Most of my birding has either been walking the local patch or ringing. However, I've managed one mini twitch for my 2nd Cheshire Pallas's Warbler found by Steve Hinde at Heswall sewage works on Saturday afternoon. Al Orton rang me around 15.30 but it was to late to get there before dusk so I went Sunday morning.
The weather was appallingly wet and the bird was quite elusive and distant so I didn't get any photo's. It was great to see some familiar faces again though. My 1st Cheshire Pallas's Warbler was also a winter bird and was along a railway embankment in Congleton in 2004/5.
Between rain showers I put the mist nets out in the garden. Highlight was the first Lesser Redpoll ringed in the garden since last winter.
