The two SIBERIAN CHIFFCHAFFS were still present around Marston Sewage Works yesterday (Sunday) morning.  They were present around the east side of the sewage works, often in the company of a small tit flock.

This map should help:

Some excellent shots of one of the birds by Neil Wright can be found on the BedsBirds blog:

The second bird is more elusive, but often appears around the small plantation in the east side.  This bird is greyer above with brighter green wings and tail.
