Siberian Chiffchaff, Purple Sandpiper & Green-winged Teal at WWT

Saturday 9th November 2013
First, some photos to ponder of the Siberian Chiffchaff at WWT Slimbridge this morning.
Most of these were taken in bad light, the latter in light rain too. I would liked to have heard it call (or even sing!) but the features fit tristis and it showed a marked contrast to a Common Chiffchaff present.

Also on site, the Purple Sandpiper was still in the Rushy (again bad light!):
... and the Green-winged Teal was on the Top New Piece along with 3,500 Eurasian Teal (luckily I had good directions - thanks again Paul T.):
