Kelsall - Iberian Chiffchaff

A quick detour on the journey back from Mull to try and connect with the Iberian Chiffchaff that had been present for a couple of days just outside of Kelsall in Cheshire.

On a balmy summers day, the bird was silent on arrival but soon perked up and began to sing although it was initially out of sight.  Singing regularly, the bird then came into view, flitting about within the trees.  It was difficult to get a decent shot of it.  However, it's distinctive song was captured on my mobile phone.
