    Default Willow Warbler?

    Could someone please confirm (or otherwise) my ID?





    Thank you

    Hi Peter

    If you look carefully, you can see all of the features by which you should be able to identify this.

    E.g., dark legs, short primary projection, a relatively poorly marked supercilium, rather greyish olive upperparts (not especially bright or yellow hued), and four emarginations on the primary edges. If it was to sing I reckon it would go 'chiff chaff'.

    Hi Brian,

    Thanks for the correction. My problem was that I got so immersed in my guide book plus, someone suggested Wood Warbler, that I missed the Chiff Chaff.

    When I read back my post it sounds very patronising. It was not meant to be and I hope you did not take it as such.
