Iberian Chiffchaff

Jono, young Henry and myself travel the short distance to Chatam in Kent to see the Iberian chiffchaff that has been singing and holding territory for several days now, having not seen one for several years it was a great opportunity to see this species again.

Cracking bird showed really well and was singing and defending its territory, showing a more brighter plumage very much like a willow warbler with paler bill and legs than chiffchaff.

Stopped at Rainham stone barges and had a singing Garden Warbler along the approach road which was a year tick.
