I've tried identifying this little thing which came into the garden this morning but cannot totally convince myself, so would appreciate a bit help.

Update:  With quite a few recent sightings of Siberian Chiffchaff on Birdguides got me wondering about this which had been kindly identified for me by others as Chiffchaff.

It's a Chiffchaff, possibly one of the eastern races.

Thanks Jonathan

I'd suggest this is certainly an 'eastern' chiff !

It does seem to have a very subtle yellow wash on the undertail and in front of one eye (just one side ?), but could this be a trick of photography ?

Did you hear it calling ?

Thanks Gary.
No calling heard at all
