the second set are all images the same bird

the third set are all images of the same bird

Initially I thought the second set were Melodious warblers - but they seemed a little too dull ....... but we have melodious warblers around, as well as Chiffchaffs and Blackcaps

the third set I had no idea which warbler as it is a very young bird

just a few yards away we have a Mulberry tree and when I was taking the above images, all in our garden and within a few mins of each other, there were a couple of young Blackcaps, (both with brown heads), eating from the tree.

Here's the Blackcap, (in a Bay tree) ......... for about 30 mins there seemed to be Warblers all over the place!!!

Apart for the very last bird which is indeed a Blackcap, all the birds look like Chiffchaffs to me.
