Hi all, as the moderator of this site I have posted some general guidance about what type of news should be posted on latest news so I don't propose to repeat myself. However I'm not the one who leaves unnecessary (and occasionally snide) comments when people have posted news that doesn't meet this criteria. This is a community website and I would like to see people treated as adults. Sometimes 'common birds' are unusual or even rare at a particular site but people should make this clear in their posting. Records such as "one Blue Tit in my garden" are not what this site is for - even the LNHS do not collect such trivial information. [[User:Andrewself|Andrewself]] 15:13, January 24, 2012 (UTC)

I witnessed what I assumed to be a Willow Warbler singing classic Willow Warbler song from the top of a tree only to sing Chiffchaff notes at the end of the phrase.

I've done some research and it seems this is not that unusual...has anyone else heard/witnessed this ?

Apparently if a true Chiffchaff is nearby, a Willow warbler can mimic it to deter it entering it's territory thus competing for food nesting sites etc...fascinating!(David Martens}--[[User:Snetram|Snetram]] ([[User talk:Snetram|talk]]) 21:42, April 22, 2014 (UTC)
