climping warbler

Driving back home
l got to hear about the possible Sykes's warbler in Climping
so headed there watching the bird fly from bush to bush
the best time was as it sat up for only seconds then moved again
the main thinking was its a Sykes's warbler so my first as would
be for most birders there. I hope this shots help with a id to be shore
