Willow Warbler or Chiffchaff please ? (1 Viewer)

Sorry for the poor photos, taken through the window !
Now I think Willow Warbler because of the pale legs, the longer primary projection and the unevenly spaced primary tips but then I look at another angle and I think possible Chiffchaff, I'm still learning and trying to get might head around these two warblers. All Photos are the same bird. Thanks for any help 🙏 1000050296.jpg1000050294.jpg1000050300.jpg
Are the toes of a chiffchaff always dark along with legs ? Willow Warbler generally have paler legs but this one in the photo has darker legs but because the toes are lighter that's another good I.d for Willow Warbler? Cheers
