So when I read that the Siberian Chiffchaff was still present at Poulter Park nearby in Morden, my mum was willing to take me.
However, as I had never been to this park before I had no idea what it would be like.
When we arrived, a female Sparrowhawk flew over in the heavy wind.
Then when we got to a Wooden Bridge where the Chiffchaff had been seen at, straight away a bird appeared in an overhanging tree on the opposite side. Although fairly obliging in the tree, it still flitted around, always covered by branches. However, it was not what we were looking for.
Then, to my amazement, a Firecrest began singing with several more Goldcrest behind me. My mum saw the bird, while I watched it fly past. Frustrating.
It reappeared several minutes later, but didn't stay long enough for a picture.
A Redwing appeared as we departed soon after, as did a Song Thrush when we returned home.
Overall, another successful birding day!
