Small fluffy passerine bird from the Netherlands (1 Viewer)


Hey guys,
I saw this small passerine bird yesterday on the edge of some woods in The Hague, Netherlands. I've seen it quite a few times before, but this is the first time I actually managed to get it on camera as it tends to never stand still. I am very unsure of what species it is. The closest I got is a chiffchaff (Phylloscopus collybita), but that species seems less 'pooffy' and its song (based off a video on Wikipedia) seems a bit different to the song of my bird, so I'm unconvinced.
I have a video of it singing as well, but the file is too big to be uploaded on the website. If you believe that hearing the song and seeing the bird move a little bit will help with identification (I recognize that my photos are a bit blurry), let me know what the best way would be to share that video.
Thanks in advance!
