A sibe?....maybe not!

Yesterday afternoon in poor light I was walking along the Pagham Lagoon when a warbler flew out from the bushes and alighted momentarily on an exposed a branch....a Chiffchaff but a very pale bird. This morning it was relocated and photographed....any comments?

 What a difference a day makes! Blue sky pretty well unbroken all day. A day with the camera...first, the North Wall where a Cettis was calling and Greenfinches, Chaffinches and a Reed Bunting were all starting to sing. Nothing unusual but really good to enjoy a bit of decent light for a change!

A very handsome bird!
