Pallas’s warbler: Moor Green lakes, January 3rd – April 18th

The serendipitous Ian Paine found this bird by the car park at Moor Green on Thursday afternoon and immediately put the news out. The next morning the bird showed for about 30 minutes in trees near the “five-bar-gate”. Since then it has only been seen with a tit flock along the Blackwater where it runs along the south of the “New workings”

Here’s a link to the Moor Green site page on BirdsofBerkshire


The bird has been seen along the river where the word “finches” appears on this map just east of the “gravel belt” but the flock typically roams 100 yards either side of the bridge over the ‘belt’

Please note: this bird was re-identified as a Pallas’s (previously a YBW) and is the first for Berkshire! Making it an even BIGGER find for Ian!
