Hasty live snaps but I must do a video when this "little bird" leaves:

Dang, I wish my quality was better but I can't do anything about it. I think this has been somewhat spoilt by efforts to improve.
Anyway, the Willow Warbler (don't all worship or scoff at me, depending on the ID verdict, at once!) treated us to a little preen:

Some people think Ospreys are a matter of life and death. I don't like that attitude. I can assure them it is much more serious than that.
In reply to CRinger:
CRinger said:Well I for one worship Scylla's video. Amazing close up! The challenge I throw out to her is next time try and get the wing spread - if it is emarginated to the 5th primary then it is a confirmed willow warbler, emarginated to the 6th and it is a chifchaff. Go on Scylla! If anyone can do it, then you can!
LOL I remember hearing that at the first Birdfair I went to at Rutland. BTO were giving ringing demos throughout the day. Hmmm could I every really be able to tell? No! But I can recognise the chiffchaff by song, one of the easiest once you know!
