Iberian Chiffchaff at Stainburn.

The male bird, first seen at the weekend, is still present.  It is very close to the mast (within 200m); park at the small car park right at the brow of the hill, and take the path through the wooden barrier, not the one next to it through a steel barrier.  About 7-8 minutes walk from the car park, with a bit of a climb.
