Popped down to Church Cove today and found this. Seemed to have all the features of halimodendri / minula / blythi type (Central Asian / Desert / Siberian Lesser Whitehroat). Behaving quite unlike a Lesser Whitehroat. Sticking to the upper and mid canopy in tall mature trees. Any thoughts on the race anybody?
This was after the bird got wet, which probably accentuates the breast colour. Doesn't have much of a mask either and it's pretty clear the brown extends up the nape
The mask does look slightly darker in this underexposed photo, but you can see the peachy breast
