Siberian Chiffchaff at Csepel, Budapest

A week ago Szabolcs Kókay found a strange Common Chiffchaff at Tamariska-domb, Csepel, south of Budapest. The bird was spotted by its unusual call and identified as a Siberian Chiffchaff, the ‘tristis’ race of Common Chiffchaff. Today I visited the site with Szabi and his brother Bence in a hope to find the bird. The bushy area was full of small warblers where we saw Common Chiffchaffs, Willow Warblers and a few Blackcaps.

We finally saw the bird and I tried to take some images of the continuously moving bird but only a few shot proved to be useable. Thanks Szabi for your time!
