Think it could be a Chiffchaff although it was not singing the usual  song. Just a loud chirp at 1second intervals.

Any confirmation or correction would be welcome, thanks

  • A definite probably. LOL My record IDing these warblers is not great but it seems to have all the right characteristics - full eye-ring, dark legs and short wings. At this time of year they often make a "hueet" contact call. Does that sound about right?

    Thanks Tony, i thought it was as I have had plenty around this year, but like you say some warblers are very similar. It was the call that threw me, the 'Chiff chaff' is unmistakable.
