Pallas's Warbler in Middleton lane.

Ed Hunter found a Pallas's Warbler at Middleton Lane this morning at 10:25. Luckily for me I work just down the road from there and by 10:40 was watching the bird feeding frantically in the Apple Tree and surrounding bushes. It was showing very well and called a few times before heading off with with a tit flock. Probably a different bird to the bird found by PP & PT last weekend, but difficult to be sure. Hopefully it will stick around so that a few more folk can catch up with it. My thanks goes to Ed for my latest Glamorgan tick.
