I've recently moved to Dodworth in Barnsley, and have a beautiful little garden that seems to attract a lot of bird life, which has now got me interested in watching them and finding out more about the visitors I get each day.
90% of what I seem to get in the garden is sparrows and dunnocks, but I also get pigeons, blackbirds, goldfinch's, blue tits and Jays. However, about a week ago I spotted this little fella...
Which looks to my (very) inexperienced eye to be a Savi's Warbler, but I wanted to get the take of the experts on here. Have I got that right, or am I off the mark?

If you are not planning on birding in Europe I'd strongly recommend Britain's Birds. It's a photographic guide but very comprehensive and shows birds in a variety of plumages and gender variation. Great value for money too. If you do buy it make sure you get the second edition which is just out.
