    Raven or Crow, Essex UK

    I'm thinking Raven due to size of beak and throat feathers but didn't seem so large, so could just be a scrawny crow? Interesting brownish wing feathers in third photo?

    Is this a Willow Warbler please. I thought I heard it singing and it sounded more melodious than a chiffchaff, but I could have been mistaken. I'm not sure whether the legs are the right colour for willow warbler?

    Waders - Essex UK

    Ah okay, they were darker backed than greenshank I am used to seeing and the legs were yellower. (and I convinced myself the bills were shorter !!) Are they juvenile?
