Phylloscs and crests

All present and correct ths morning.  The Yellow-browed Warbler was still present with one or two Chiffchaffs at Monk Haven, less confiding than on my visit earlier in the week, but seen feeding on a couple of occasions, mostly in the tops of the alders between the church and the car park.  At least one Firecrest was still present there too, very active and on view from the church yard and the car park.  Elsewhere, the 'tristis' Chiffchaff was still showing well along the nature trail at Milton, with one or two of the nominate race also still in the area.  Goldcrests were plentiful at both sites.
