Sunday 02 May, La Umbria, 1130hrs, clear skies, light NW wind: Interesting opportunity to hear and contrast Iberian chiffchaff (Phylloscopus ibericus) and (Common) Chiffchaff (Ph. collybita). The songs, at least in this case, were quite distinctive. The wooded valley to the North was full of singing Blackcaps, Chiffchaffs, Blackbirds, Wrens, Sardinian warbers and Robins. Also heard Cuckoo, Great-spotted woodpecker, Eurasian nuthatch and Short-toed treecreeper.
