Great series Colin. I would say that the 1st is a willow warbler, it's legs look too light to be a chiffchaff. Really like the bearded tit.

Hi Colin, Congrats on the two lifers, all are really good photos, but I think my favorite is the Starling. I'm really envious of the Sparrowhawk photos, I've only had a captive in my camera viewfinder.
