A Blackcap with aberrant song is present at Hindley Deep Pits and well worth a visit by anybody with decent sound recording equipment.

When I first heard it yesterday I doubted that it was a bird, thinking somebody was doing something like stripping cable for scrap (don't really know why I thought that, but the road there can be a fly-tipping hotspot). It basically sounded like a loud Wood Warbler with it's batteries nearly run-out. A loud, stuttering series of clipped notes (each individual note quite finch-like), delivered very slowly, with a slight wavering flourish.
It basically had me baffled and I thought it most likely an abberant song or an escaped cagebird. I initially thought it was a finch, until a brief flight view, when it did look like a Blackcap. The closest I could find on the internet last night was aberrant Garden Warbler song.
This morning it was still singing and eventually it did so completely in the open, high on an Alder. As it sang it was noticeably quivering in the manner of a singing Wood Warbler. Before I had seen it properly , a couple of times it flew between song posts in the woodland edge while making a high-pitched 'schreep' call, which I don't recall hearing from a Blackcap previously. This morning at close range, at the end of the song-phrase there was a short very quiet twittering jumble of sweeter notes.

From Ladies Lane, Hindley take the unadopted Highfield Rd opp Hindley Railway Station. Don't drive much beyond the houses due to extremely bad pot-holes further down the track. Go past a signposted public footpath on the left, then where a cornfield starts on the right, the bird has frequented the woodland edge on the left (opposite a green 'No Tipping' sign on a timber power cable pole).

It would be interesting to find out whether this bird develops a more regular song if it remains there.

Several pairs of Skylarks nesting in short sward fields of grain crops - adults seen carrying food. Also a male Linnet with 2 juveniles along the edge of a field of rape seed. Swallows nesting in local farms.

Cheers,

Bill.
