Siberian Chiffchaff ~ Paignton Zoo

Siberian Chiffchaff ~ Paignton zoo and not as an exhibit, I got my first Siberian Chiffchaff today at of all places Paignton Zoo. While watching a normal Chiffchaff working around the pond margins and cover in one of the primate pens saw a second bird, the colouration difference was remarkable the second bird being a buff light brown on top and very pale off white cream below, the first bird being the usual buffy green topside and creamy yellow below both birds showing well for some time.
