Paulboy Hawkins found this stunning Siberian Chiffchaff at Rainham Marshes this afternoon 50m east of the Serin mound. It showed really well for a few minutes before the rain started which was on and off all day. Paul located it by call and having seen 3 over the years myself, its the first time I've heard one call, very distinctive. Well done Paul....
It's buff face, breast-sides and flanks makes this bird really stand out on a dull afternoon.
