Hope Carr sewage works
Published:
Description:

Anybody who cares to divert their attention from the Blyth's reed warbler at Hope Carr, and instead look over the sewage works next door can find some interesting birds. Apart from a 1st winter / female black redstart, up to four green sandpipers are present, also several grey wagtails and lots of pied wagtails and meadow pipits. There is a black-headed gull flock of around 200 birds which occasionally includes an adult Mediterranean gull and a magnificent leucistic black-headed gull. Unsurprisingly both of these gulls regularly frequent the Pennington Flash gull roost, the Mediterranean gull has a metal ring on its left leg and is a probably the female which has been returning to the Flash for years, whilst the leucistic bird is back for at least its second winter.

Given the release this week of an adult ivory gull which was taken into care at Stranraer, the appearance of the leucistic bird at Hope Carr was understandably a heart stopping moment! Even the 3rd winter Iceland gull which feeds at Atherton and roosts at the Flash put in an appearance a couple of weeks ago, leaving yellow-legged gull as the only regularly occurring Pennington Flash gull which I haven't seen at Hope Carr.






Show time! The Return of the Blyth's Reed Warbler
Published:
Description:

Incredibly, after six days of no-show, the Blyth's reed warbler put in the performance of a lifetime today at Hope Carr! I arrived on site at 9am and expected to be alone. However I immediately spotted Andy who urgently gestured me towards him. The Blyth's reed warbler was just a few feet away and showing amazingly well. Andy had already put the news out and soon we were joined by the original finder, Phil and the three of us watched the bird for 30 minutes or more before we were joined by Ray and Dave. This was Dave's first attempt to see the bird and within 30 seconds he'd seen it and photographed it! The bird continued to show well until at least 2pm when I left, and reports on the Manchester Birding Forum suggest that it was still showing well to at least 4:20pm. No idea where that performance came from today or if it will be repeated tomorrow, although one thought occurs; the bird was feeding actively all day. Perhaps tonight is the night it leaves? Who can tell with this bird.....








Spot the Blyth's reed warbler. It's right in the centre of the photo, and this gives a good idea of how skulking it can be at times!










Yeah, it's a horrible place, you leave it to me......




Peregrine!
Black redstart, Hope Carr
Published:
Description:
On days when the Blyth's reed warbler doesn't show there's still plenty to keep me entertained at Hope Carr. Star of the supporting cast over this past week has been a 1st winter / female black redstart which showed well but briefly in the sewage works compound and on the perimeter fence on one afternoon and again the following morning. Chances are it's still around but once it disappears to feed on the ground amongst the various machinery and buildings it's a very difficult bird to spot.

Other highlights have included woodcock, little egret, two peregrines, green sandpiper, up to four chiffchaffs, 40 shoveler, 80 teal, six goosander and a variety of woodland birds including willow tits and bullfinches. In total I've now recorded what I consider to be an impressive 73 bird species at the site in the past two weeks.



The Blyth's reed warbler is a very frustrating bird. At times it shows unbelievably well at point blank range, but then it can go missing for three or four days at a time. I've now managed to see it well on four different days, but to put that into perspective, I've been to the site every day since 22nd January (16 days) and spent about 65 hours on site, during which time I've probably watched the bird for a combined total of 1 hour. Of those 16 days, there have been 10 days when the bird was not seen at all by anybody and two other days when it was only seen for seconds. It's definitely a fair weather bird, when the sun shines and the temperature rises a bit it can show well, but if the weather isn't so good it becomes elusive to the point of invisible. It obviously must feed even during poor weather, it can't not feed for 10 out of 16 days, but I suggest that during wind / rain / sleet /snow and freezing conditions it's deep in the bramble picking off spider egg sacs or moth pupa, whereas in warm sunshine it's tempted to the tops of the bramble in pursuit of flying insects as it was yesterday (Monday). This bird has the potential to be around for another month and as we get closer to spring we should get pleasanter, warmer days and with them plenty of potential for it to start showing a little better.


Clues to the survival of a Blyth's Reed Warbler in winter
Published:
Description:

Early in its stay, the Blyth's reed warbler at Hope Carr disappeared for three and a half days during a period of harsh, freezing conditions, the worst of the winter so far, and led to speculation that it had either moved on or more likely died. After all, what could an insectivorous species find to feed on in such harsh conditions? I think that this photo helps answer the question.

The prey item is I think a spider egg sac, or possibly a moth pupa, both of which I guess form a staple part of its diet especially when temperatures are sub-zero and adult invertebrates are inactive. The brambles are probably full of egg sacs or pupa such as this, attached to the bottom of leaves or bramble stems or other vegetation and they don't disappear or die just because of a few freezing nights or heavy snow. For the warbler it's like visiting the frozen food section at the supermarket! I don't know enough about the ecology of reed warblers to know if feeding on egg sacs and/or pupa is just a winter thing or if it happens all year. It would be interesting to know, but I guess that it's not that common or surely more insectivorous birds would over winter? Just as blackcaps change their diet from insects to berries in the winter, perhaps Blyth's reed warblers change from adult prey to pupa / eggs in winter? Actually the thought occurs to me that since this is probably the first ever overwintering Blyth's reed warbler in the UK and possibly even Europe, that this is probably also the first occasion that a winter food item of the species has been recorded in this country / continent. In the afternoon when temperatures rose slightly the bird was also seen briefly flycatching.

The Blyth's reed warbler showed better than ever today in glorious sunshine at Hope Carr, but it's still a difficult bird. Plenty left saying that they only had fleeting glimpses, and even more left without a photo, so I'm happy with these photos from my little bridge camera! The weather forecast for the next two days is for heavy rain / sleet / snow / sub-zero temperatures so it was good to see it feeding up so well today.



At about 10am I was viewing the filterbeds on the sewage works about 50m down the track along the perimeter fence when I heard the warbler calling,"tak, tak"and then I saw it at close range. It flew almost immediately and I lost it. About 5 minutes later it was picked up again by the assembled masses in the usual spot by the gate and it showed very well for a few minutes and then on and off all day, though it seemed more elusive in the afternoon. In some ways I'd prefer it to leave now, because whilst it remains I'm constantly tempted back for another look and probably neglect the rest of the site. Still, I recorded 47 species today including green sandpiper, tree sparrow and willow tit, so not a bad day.


A great couple of days at Hope Carr
Published:
Description:

Well, I've spent a lot of time at Hope Carr over the past week, probably in access of 24 birding hours, and most of that has been standing in front of a bramble patch waiting for a single bird to give itself up. It's been an uncomfortable experience standing in mud next to a sewage works in wind, rain, sleet, snow, fog and often in sub-zero temperatures, but it's been well worth it!

After an absence of three and a half days, the Blyth's reed warbler decided to put in another appearance today. I never really believed that it had gone given the weather we have had recently, but I was starting to think that perhaps it was dead. However as predicted, as soon as the first rays of sunshine emerged through the clouds today, the mildest day since last Sunday, a"tak, tak"call was heard from the brambles and shortly afterwards the bird began to show. I arrived on site at 10:15 just as the bird finally showed well for the first time and I saw it very well on and off until about 12:30. For most of this period the bird was very vocal, though for the last half hour or so it more or less stopped calling. Much appreciated by the many birders who finally managed to connect with it.

However it's not just the warbler which has made the past few days so special, there's a decent supporting cast as well. Putting in a regular appearance are two green sandpipers, chiffchaff, adult Mediterranean gulls, tree sparrows, grey wagtails, meadow pipits, 100+teal, 20 shoveler, 30 gadwall and 15 tufted ducks. Even better, on Monday a flock of 9 whooper swans flew over, on Friday a 3rd winter Iceland gull flew over and today a juvenile marsh harrier was added to the list. If I saw that lot plus the warbler anywhere locally I'd be delighted, but when it's just a two mile walk through farmland from my home it makes me think that maybe I should visit more often.....

Blyth's Reed Warbler, Hope Carr
Published:
Description:

An unseasonal reed warbler was found on Sunday at Hope Carr nature reserve on the outskirts of Leigh and just a couple of miles walk my home. Even though it was initially reported as"only"a Eurasian reed warbler, it immediately piqued my interest because I don't ever recall hearing of them overwintering before, though with climate change perhaps it does occasionally happen in southern England these days. So it was worth a look anyway I thought, but I also wanted to see it for insurance purposes.... it wouldn't be the first time that a species on such an unusual date was later re-identified from photographs as something much rarer, and thankfully so it proved once again.

I decided to have a look for the bird on Monday, if nothing else it was a bit different to my usual walk around Pennington Flash. I arrived at about 9:30am to find two birders had got there before me and they provided me with two pieces of contrasting news; the first was that the bird had not been seen so far today and the second, it was now considered to be a Blyth's reed warbler, identified from photos and video taken the day before. So my hunch had proven correct, but the main part of my plan was that I should see the warbler which was no closer to happening...... the bird wasn't seen all day Monday.

The weather forecast for Tuesday was pretty grim, snow or sleet showers for most of the day, occasionally heavy. It didn't sound great and the temptation was to stay indoors, especially following the no-show the day before. However I decided that it was worth another look for what would be a new bird for me and I arrived on site at 10:15am, again joining up with two other birders. Today the news was better, they had just seen the bird in a patch of dense bramble. After a nervy 10 minutes without any further sightings, eventually I managed to relocate it in a different bramble patch just as the sun was breaking through the clouds. It showed very well on and off for the next 30 minutes or so and was heard calling frequently with a harsh"tack", quite unlike anything uttered by Eurasian reed warbler.

Apart from the call it's the emarginations on the primaries which help clinch the identification but seeing those was beyond me today and my photos are nowhere near good enough. However others have taken much better photos and confirmed the identification. Finally after it's brief appearance, the sun disappeared for the day and the bird shortly afterwards. A fantastic Greater Manchester tick, a fantastic inland record and a great winter record, possibly the UK's first ever overwintering Blyth's reed warbler.








Birders waiting patiently but ultimately in vain for the bird to show on Wednesday. The weather forecast was for bright sunshine and light winds, but the reality was freezing fog. I don't think that the bird was ever likely to show in these conditions. Wednesdays no-show now means that in the past three days the bird has shown for a total of less than one hour yesterday. Elusive is definitely the word for this bird.

One good piece of news from today though, the sonogram of the birds call has been analysed and fits perfectly with the sonogram of a typical Blyth's reed warbler, the final piece in the jigsaw which clinches the identification!


It's favourite bramble patch.


Thanks to John Tymon for this photo of me on site.

Return of the yellow-legged gull
Published:
Description:

This yellow-legged gull has returned to the Pennington Flash gull roost again for the winter. Now an adult in it's 4th winter, it's returned ever year since it was a juvenile. At this time of year adult yellow-legged gulls can be very difficult to pick out when they are on the water like this. Yes they have a darker mantle than the British herring gull and usually a brighter unstreaked white head, but the northern race herring gullargentatus which is quite common at the roost in winter also has a darker mantle and after Christmas many acquire a white head. At the roost I skip past many birds which might be adult yellow-legged gulls but which could beargentatusbut I just can't be sure. Yet this bird stands out like a sore thumb. It's a real cracker of a bird, small square head, thick neck, dark mantle, long wings and small mirrors. We did see it standing on a buoy briefly when it's yellow legs were clearly seen.





Returning Iceland gulls
Published:
Description:

Warrington's returning adult Iceland Gull was back today for at least its 6th winter. It usually frequents an area between Warrington College and Tesco superstore, and often you can see it flying across the A49 or sometimes it might be on a roof, though if it chooses a flat roof it can disappear out of view for long periods. Thanks to John Tymon for alerting me to it's presence today. John first saw the bird as an adult six winters ago, so it's possible that it has been returning unnoticed for a lot longer than that and it's true age is anybody's guess. Why it should keep returning to spend the winter around Warrington town centre is an even bigger mystery, I would have thought that the pickings would have been greater if it joined the throngs of gulls at a local landfill site. Still, it's a beautiful bird and a very welcome addition to the local avifauna.

Click here to see some photos of the bird from last April

John first saw the bird near Decathlon today but it wasn't there when I arrived. I parked up and walked towards the college and found the bird on the lawn in front of the college, feeding alone on worms which it brought to the surface with that strange little dance that so many species of gull perform.

In previous winters this bird has very rarely roosted at Pennington Flash, but an adult appeared in the roost for the first time this winter about eight days ago and has been seen on at least one other occasion since then and may well be the same bird.



It's got a pretty impressive bill for an Iceland gull, it's head shape and bill ratio look more like herring gull than common gull which is how Iceland gulls usually look. Iceland gull is supposed to have a bill length of less than 50% of the head length, whereas glaucous gull would have a bill length of greater than 50%. This bird clearly has a bill length in excess of 50%. Another unusual feature of this bird is the lack of streaking on the head at this time of year. Typically both Iceland and Glaucous gull would have quite heavy streaking in mid January. I suspect that this is quite an old bird, which may explain the lack of streaking. However, on primary projection alone this bird is clearly an Iceland gull and not glaucous. Also look at the large eye, proportionately much larger than one would expect on a typical glaucous gull.






This is another returning Iceland gull, a 3rd winter bird in the Pennington Flash roost. This bird has been returning regularly to roost at the flash since it was a juvenile and spends it's days feeding at a recycling centre at Atherton or at Cutacre country park.

Wanderer at 6 o'clock!
Published:
Description:
Snowy albatross
"Wanderer at 6 o'clock!", the cry went up and sent shivers down my spine. This was the moment I had been dreaming of for years, the appearance of a great albatross during a southern ocean pelagic. We'd been at sea for six hours, we were 35 miles offshore from Port Fairy, Victoria, over the edge of the continental shelf and the sea bed was nearly a kilometer below us. We'd seen many albatrosses already, but they were all of the smaller type, in this region often referred to as molyhawks. Four species in fact, shy, black-browed, Indian yellow-nosed and Campbell albatross, all with wingspans of 2.5m or less.

The new arrival was considerably bigger, a wandering albatross with a wingspan of up to 3.5m, the longest of any living bird. This awesome and majestic bird glided past the boat without a single flap of the wings, dwarfing the nearby molyhawks and taking my breath away. Over the next hour or so the bird stayed with us and was joined by an immature bird, as well as two other species of great albatross.

Snowy albatross and Grey-faced petrel
The name wandering albatross refers to a group of up to four very similar species. This bird isDiomedea exulansor snowy albatross. Note especially the almost grotesque size of the bill on this bird and then compare with the New Zealand wandering albatross in the photo further down.

New Zealand wandering albatross ssp. gibsonii
I'm told by the seabird experts on the boat, of which there were clearly several (one guy was on his 100th pelagic), that this bird most closely resembles New Zealand wandering albatross of the racegibsonii. This is another of the great albatrosses in the wandering albatross group. The key differences between this species and snowy exulansis the relative size of the bill and also the slightly more compact appearance. I'm clearly no albatross expert, but perhaps I can see that the bill on this bird is not quite so grotesquely large as that of snowy albatross above. Perhaps this bird also has a shorter more compact neck. Or maybe I'm just trying to make it fit. New Zealand wandering albatross is actually the commonest of the great albatrosses in south Australian waters.

The third and final great albatross of today's pelagic was this magnificent Northern royal albatross with a similar sized wingspan or slightly smaller than wandering albatross.

Northern royal albatross. What a fantastic bird. Imagine that, a 3.5m wingspan! That's twice my height!


At the other end of the scale, Indian yellow-nosed albatross is the smallest of the molyhawks with a wingspan of 2m. Still with a wingspan greater than my height though!

Look at the size difference! Shy albatross (which is itself only a molyhawk) and Indian yellow-nosed albatross. Wandering albatross can be up to twice the weight of shy albatross!


Shy albatross, the commonest albatross in the area. At times there were probably up to 50 of these birds around the boat and in total we saw about 90.

This Campbell Albatross came into the boat in the early afternoon. It's almost inseparable  from juvenile black-browed except that it has a diagnostic pale iris. Thank goodness Kevin Bartram was able to get such a great photo, and a big thanks to him for letting me use it here.




Northern giant petrel.


Apparently this was a late date for brown skua, which was good news for me! We also saw two Arctic skuas which were of interest because potentially they could be Scottish breeders.

Grey-faced petrel, we saw about 70 of these.

White-faced storm petrel are fantastic birds, pattering and bouncing across the water leaving barely a ripple. We saw about 30 today.

Fairy prion, of which there were about 30 today.


We saw about 150 short-tailed shearwaters.

Finally the boat turned and we started to head back at speed. I was sitting below deck looking through a guide book and drifting in and out of sleep and two other birders were looking at photographs from the day and filling in a recording form. It had been the perfect day but a long day, and it was time for quiet refl..... the engine stopped suddenly and we were drifting! In half a second the three of us were on deck and looking around. Why had we stopped?

Suddenly a huge arching back broke the surface of the water right alongside the boat and a huge spray of water was expelled from a whale blowhole! And then there was another and another. Seven in total, humpback whales.

Over the next 15 minutes we watched as these magnificent animals gave us a wonderful show, tail slapping, pectoral fin slapping and swimming back and forth under the boat. Eventually we saw them breach on several occasions. An amazing finale to a fantastic day.



These impressive animals came right alongside the boat, in fact we could see them under water they were so close. I should add that we didn't approach them, they came right up alongside us.








The humpbacks weren't the only whales, we saw two pods of up to 20 pilot whales. I'm told that they were long-finned pilot whales. This certainly looks like long-finned going off the amount of white behind the dorsal fin, but see below.



Pilot whale.




Pilot whale sky hopping.


We did see two pods of pilot whales and in my opinion these could easily be short-finned looking at the grey area below the dorsal fin, but I don't know enough about variation in the species to be sure. Long-finned are far more likely in south Australian waters.



Common dolphins


Australian fur seals. There were up to 30 jumping out of the water together in the area where the gannets were plunge diving.

Port Fairy pelagics are run byBirdswing Birding and Wildlife Tours. It was a wonderful trip, far exceeding my expectations, largely due to the very knowledgeable and helpful people on the boat. I certainly didn't expect to see seven species of albatross and two species of whale on what was a truly unforgettable day and the highlight of my trip to Australia. I can't recommend this pelagic highly enough.
