Congrats on the lifers Colin!
I agree with your Willow Warbler ID - it was nice to be able to break out the RSPB guide for a change.
A nice series - glad you have been able to get out and shoot... my parents tell me that the UK weather has been very hot or very wet recently - either way brings its own challenges!

Hi Colin, really nice series and varied collection of species, well done. Congrats on the lifer, but it's hard to confrim the WW, the difference between the WW and a Chiffchaff is in the leg colours, The WW has flesh coloured and the CC black legs
