My friend Sharon joined me on a wild walk around Parc Slip Nature Reserve today and, though the reserve itself was very quiet, it was all action near the Centre building, because of this little beauty. This Siberian chiffchaff, a rarity that should be over-wintering somewhere in the lower Himalayas (not dissimilar to south Wales at all!), was first spotted about a week ago and, with its constant activity and absolute fearlessness of humans, it has been entertaining bird-lovers from far and wide.
