Late afternoon I was back,I put up my small 20ft net where I had first seen it yesterday and only after about five minutes it was in the net,but was it the same bird?.In the hand the bird was a normal (c.Collibita) Greenish tinge to the upper parts and rump.After taking the ring details I took in hand photo`s and then released it.
Back home I transferred the photo`s and yes-----a brownish rump and upper-parts with no hint of green,so can the camera lie--YES.
I almost forgot the ring details,yes it was one of my birds,but a nice re trap.It was ringed at New Hythe in the east scrub as a juvenile on the 11 08 2010 and is now holding a territory at Holborough.
A true Siberian,tristis Chiffchaff can be seen on this Blog under March 2009.It was seen in the same spot where to days bird was trapped.
I heard my first Blackcap at Snodland this morning.
