This Chiffchaff which plumage wise was very like tristis was giving an odd call, it was sharper than normal tristis but still more hollow than normal collybita, somewhere between the two! it responded brilliantly with wing quivering and quiet chuck - chuck call to tristis song but not to collybita song.

some closer photos of the bird:

Other birds included 8 Cirl Buntings on seed in back of 2nd car park, and collybita chiffchaff On Sea:1 Great Northern Diver, 3 Black-necked Grebes and 3 Great Crested Grebes.
