Here's a short video of the singing bird made by my brother one morning. The bird was quite active in the early morning hours, calling and singing a lot. The song is quite unique, very different from the other Chiffchaffs that were also singing in the area making the direct comparison possible.

Thanks for posting this - the photos and video (with audio) are very instructive, showing the generally brown colouration, particularly on the flanks, with the white belly. The 'rusty' ear coverts are also shown in some of the photos. The song is very distinctive - the first time I have heard the song of a tristis. Thanks again!
