Got a call from Graham Armstrong saying he had found 2 pale chiffs which he thought were tristis although he hadnt heard them call.
It didnt take long to get onto them although they were very active, constantly working their way up and down the bush line.
The two birds could be clearly separated from each other as one was distinctly paler. For some reason this bird was much less approachable.
After at least an hour one of the birds eventually called, uttering the classic non-inflected tristis call 3 times.
This was the bird that called

This is the paler bird that stubbornly refused to call
