SWAMPHEN retrieved......

The unusually confiding adult female GREY-HEADED SWAMPHEN that has spent the best part of a month in a roadside ditch NW of Chester was captured today by Saltney resident Robin Williams, after he claimed that it was one of four individuals he was keeping at his residence (two birds - a pair - originally escaped, the male returning after just a few days on the run). His story was verified and just goes to show what type of bird species are being kept privately. Thanks to Phil Woollen and others for the information (LGRE)
