Spent the Morning down at the local brook.But its still running through with all the excess rainfall which we have had the last couple of days.This is pushing the Kingfishers further downstream to fish.So I setup and waited for this Chiffchaff to vacate this tree after a shortwhile it stayed static on a branch low enough to avoid the horrible grey sky.Hopefully after the next few days of more heavy rain things will settle down.Thanks for all previous votes and comments .
