Do Sedge Warblers ever have black legs?

Dear all,

I watched this little chap for a long time in the hope he would speak and give me a clue, but no joy.

I would appreciate help with the ID.

Regards.
G B-S.

I've never seen a Sedgie with anything other than pinky legs, but I'm sure there must be a weird one out there somewhere.........as for this little chap, it's a Whinchat.
