Chiffchaff

The loud call of the chiffchaff can be heard now in the woods and gardens. Some birds are present all year in Southern England but migrants arrive now and stay until late August or September when they return to Mediterranean regions for the winter. They are not easy to distinguish from other warblers by sight but the distinctive "chiff  chaff" call is unmistakeable.
