Siberian Chiffchaff!

Having read Ben's blog, I now realise that Brian and I both heard and glimpsed the Siberian Chiffchaff in the tangled scrub by the sluice on the 18th.

We spent a while listening to the bird's distinctive call, but couldn't put a name to it. Several times we had fleeting views of a greyish warbler flitting across gaps in the scrub, but didn't manage a photo. Alerted by Ben's posting, I listened to the call online and it was an exact fit: I'll try for a photo today...
