It's difficult to separate Willows from chiffchaffs. This bird looks like it has recently fledged. I'd rather not stick my neck out on this one, safe to say it's a willowchiff!

I thought it might be a wiffwaff :)

Great photos though, Sheila.

Oh thanks lads what a hoot.With you saying its a fledgling Warren it did say in my book that the willow warbler juvenile is more easier to ID because it has more yellow on its underparts.

I have no idea Sheila, but they are lovely pics, and at least you can still watch the birds in your beautiful stream! x

Sheila I had to laugh at the willowchiff/wiffwaff :) but I'm so sad for your other little birds, I fear I saw a juvenile Goldfinch with the same problem today and a young Chaffinch last week, it really is heartbreaking and so difficult to know what to do when the birds have come to rely on the food we put in our gardens. Be assured you're not alone, we can only be as hygienic as possible and hope eventually they will become immune to it.

Thanks for visiting my blog! I'm so sorry about the disease problem! And oh I know the woes of snapping birds through glass, arg.
