Plymouth Possible Sibe Chiff

Heard a really odd song a bit earlier which I eventually realised was coming out of a Chiffchaff. Sounds very good for Sibe Chiffchaff and was calling like a Sibe. The bird looks pretty good too being grey above with some sandy tones. Disclaimer is that in some positions/lights it can appear a little greeny and it was occasionally giving bits of song and calls that sounded more like collybita. The bird is outside the university on North Hill, just behing the bus stops, next to the copper clad building that is under construction. Laurie Alnatt got some pics and if I can work out how to upload the short song recording I got, I will.
