First Cetti's for SWLRG

An excellent day on Rimrose Valley on Saturday produced the first Cetti's Warbler for South-west Lancs RG. The arrival of this first-year female follows the national trend of an increase in this species, that are increasingly spreading northwards. It will be interesting to see if this bird sticks around for the winter, or whether it is just passing through.
