   Two birds located on a dune on the right hand track just before 'Little

   Sat 27 Sep Zitting Cisticola (2) Port Alma Rd, near Cheetham Salt Works
   After looking at HANZAB and consulting with people / looking at images
   online, I am now happy to identify two cisticolas that we saw while
   searching for the Yellow Chats on Saturday as Zitting Cisticolas. This
   ID was based on plumage characteristics mentioned in HANZAB, and on
   calls heard in flight. I have fixed our original site list to include
   these birds. Further information including a summary from HANZAB can be
   found in the link.
