A nice twitch in the middle of Zürich! Yesterday, an Aquatic Warbler was found at a little pond near a building site in the middle of the city. I was there this morning with the first light, but had to leave after 40 minutes (work was calling). So I had to try again in the evening and suceeded then with really nice views.
