Same Chiffchaff, also Cettis

I think I probably heard the same Chiffchaff as Richard (see below). We have had one singing around  Orlandon Kilns for the last two days but nothing before that. This is quite a late date for the first singing Chiffchaff here. Also I occasionally hear a Cettis Warbler singing from Winterton Marsh - but it seems to be located quite high up the marsh where the potato ponds are. It is worth noting that the footpath which goes from Orlandon towards Winterton has been reopened, though taking a somewhat different route to the right-of-way marked on the map. The Cettis was singing from quite close to this path. (In case you have no idea what I'm talking about the potato ponds are at SM810090. The more easterly one is inaccessible.)
