Ident help please

Caught site of two of these, in Gosforth Park last night and am unable to identify.

about same size as Willow Warbler and its call was a quiet 'tsst,tsst' every 5-10 seconds.
Photo taken around 7.30pm, raining and dark - at least thats my excuse.
I realise its not much to go on but ......
any ideas?

Was the "tsst, tsst" not a disstress call? If so could it not perhaps be a Chiffchaff.

Hi Andrew,
They did not seem to be agitated and were moving about feeding at the time. Thanks for your response.
