Willow Warbler

Willow Warbler (Phylloscopus trochilus)

This is the bird of which I posted a couple of shots last year. It was a dark-legged individual (so the legs don't stand out from the dark background in this shot), but long wings ruled out Chiffchaff and clinched the ID as Willow Warbler.

Thank you for your comments on my pictures, stay safe and well, and good birding!
