Question Perhaps a warbler? (UK)

Spotted this bird (Lochside) just outside Kinross House Gardens in Scotland.

I had been trying to take photos of a row of young swallows waiting to be fed and this bird breezed through... straight into a bush. It was tricky to see where it went.

Would love to know what it is

Thanks, Shirl

I would say the same thing

The Willow Warblers tend to like to sit on the top most branch of a tree so it is easy to photograph them

Not all Warblers are easy to see

Thanks Andrew and chowchilla

Thanks too Peewit you are right it was difficult to spot (in this case) in the middle of the bush. I didn't even know what to focus on.

I've just been back to this area today and captured video footage of a couple of juv swallows being fed. I am thrilled! I'll post footage on my blog over the weekend

Cheers, Shirl
