Chiffchaff or Willow Warbler
The above photo was taken yesterday at my local nature reserve I believe it to be a Chiffchaff but identification is not easy. I have asked a couple of my bird watching friends and at the moment it is a 50-50 split in opinion.
It is very hard indeed to tell a Chiffchaff from a Willow Warbler!
There are a few clues Chiffchaffs usually have darker legs and shorter wings, however unless you hear them singing you can never be 100% sure.
Ok look at the above image is this a Chiffchaff or Willow Warbler?
Before you make up your mind check the next image too.
Not easy is it?
Here is another one that I took in the same area.
Again I think I am right to believe this is a Chiffchaff, but if anyone knows better please let me know.
