Chiffchaffs at Carnon Downs SF

Sewage Farms are well known sites for wintering phyloscs in Cornwall and Carnon Downs is a regular site for Chiffchaffs. The four images below show two darker nominate individuals and a noticeably paler bird showing characteristics of the eastern form abietinus. They were taken on Sunday afternoon with the 600mm F/4 at a range of about 8 yards. If the cold spell in the north of the UK continues this week, more phyloscopus warblers should appear here.
