Red Rocks nr, Wirral, Merseyside.
A Blyth's reed warbler at the north end of the reserve today. Its been there a couple of days and showed well to me for about 10 seconds. An acro warbler, cold coloured grey brown, with none contrasting upper plumage, and a white throat and whiteish lower parts. A prominent eyering and a less prominent super in front of the eye and slighly behind. It was calling and responding to a couple of pebbles that I tapped together. The call similar to a sylvia tacking.
