200th Thanet Bird ......... Iberian Chiffchaff in Margate

Iberian Chiffchaff at Northdown Park.


News broke of a Iberian Chiffchaff at Northdown Park in Margate this morning the 23rd April 
I couldn't get down there until after 11am , i parked up near the Library and made my way over towards the football pitch , but wasn't entirely sure where to look ??

 As i made my way over to the area i could hear the Iberian Chiffchaff calling i then saw another birder , David Meirs , good to meet you (sorry if i have spelt your name wrong).

Partially hidden behind leafs.

The Iberian Chiffchaff was in full voice and started to show really well , this is the 200th different bird species i have seen in the Thanet area so as you can imagine i was very pleased to see it .
