Warbler sized Garden bird ID needed Crewkerne Somerset UK (1 Viewer)


duck and diver, bobolink and weaver


May I suggest you record its song if it reappears as this is usually better in identifying warblers, as photos may contain colour artefacts or distortion.
Rich melodic song suggests either Dunnock or Blackcap to me, Dunnock especially if this time of year, it is often the very first sign of the coming spring. Dunnock breaks its habit of being discreet and on the ground; when singing it will do so prominently from a perch

edit: When I say rich and melodic, I mean it's a pleasing, quite short, musical jingle.

Hello Earlybird.
In the meantime, a possible suggestion is to listen to the birdsong online and see if any matches what you've heard. Start with the birds that have been suggested to you.

Good luck
