tristis and more YBW

 Yesterday a calling Yellow-browed Warbler in my garden and today one on Turøy. But better was a Siberian Chiffchaff on the island, which was calling good (almost echoing against the stonewall at Måsvatnet). Saw the bird briefly, looking good for tristis. Khaki colours on the upper part, no green visible on the head and upper parts, pallid eyebrow and a thin wing bar along the greater coverts. The feet and bill gave also a very dark impression. But as said, I saw it briefly and it didn't show again, surely afraid of a hunting Sparrowhawk...call is diagnostic, I would say!

Further flyby Goldfinches, Common Crossbills, Grey-headed Woodpecker and a few Bullfinches...At least one bird in the group of crossbills sounded like a Parrot Crossbill in my ears...
