        It seems Bert likes Chiffy's.

        Will go for Willow warbler.

            Willow Warbler in Portugal at this time of year, especially with this horrendous weather, is not very likely.

              I would say it can only be a Chiffchaff - on the wing the lenght of p 3,4,5,6 are very close
              For Bonelli's, Willow and Wood this is not so

                You would think that but the other day when i was in london, watching the dusky warbler which is there, in rain, sleet and snow a willow warbler come on the pager at the London wetlands centre singing and had been for a few days, i think it must have a been a little confused?!

                      "London Wetland Centre: 2 Bitterns (Wildside), Water Pipit, 4+ Cetti's Warblers, c85 Lapwing, also 3 Bitterns, 6 Pintail, 2 Rock Pipits, Willow Warbler (present for 4th day inc. subsong)"

                        Reiterating more or less what Howard said, you can produce an "imaginary" closure of the wing to produce a relatively short primary projection. Plus, the 'super' is very indistinct. I have never seen a Willow Warbler in Algarve (much further south than where Bert is) at this time of year in the past thirteen years.

                        Come on Bert, WTF is it?

                          Willow warblers are ofcourse not thought of as a wintering species in Britain but im sure through the years one or two might have stayed, this winter a Whitethroat was caught in devon (17th jan) and a lesser whitethroat has been seen in notts so i dont seen no reason why a willow warbler couldnt servive?
                          The chiffchaffs, blackcaps and cettis warblers manage okay too!
                          Like i said its on the pager and the london bird club, i didnt see it just herd that there was one there.. a strange record if it was one!

                              I still cannot find confirmation of this bird Andy, and "Googling" the "London Bird Club" produces some interesting results!!!
