Chiffchaffs are notoriously variable in colour, anything from greenish-yellow through pale brown to pale grey. It depends on what part of Chiffchaffdom they come from.

Why, out of all available European phylloscopus, would you want to turn it into an orientalis?

I would quite like a few Chiffchaffs to turn into something more exciting, wouldn't you?

I normally try forlornly to turn them into Duskies.

Carpie - Bonelli's has a more open looking face, silvery white clean looking underparts and bright green edges to its primaries.... telling Eastern from Western is much harder.. calls needed! As ever you took a great photo!
