Siberian Chiffchaff?

Possible Siberian Chiffchaff at Westhay today.
Photos on the blog. Sadly I can't claim them as Andrew took them...

Many thanks James, this may be the bird I saw on the path between London and Daggs drove on the 20/01/2015 unfortunately I was unable to get a good photo to confirm its ID but was certain it was a Siberian Chiffchaff, a first for me ,a very distinctive little bird, well done a difficult subject to photograph.

Re: Siberian Chiffchaff?

I would love to take the glory unfortunately I didn't find it or photograph it!
Andrew Asher was the man who got the photo and Mike Tout found it.
He has kindly provided a grid reference
