[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
Not sure if this is a Chiffchaff or a Willow Warbler. They look so similar in my book. First time I've managed to capture this little chap. I managed only one shot and he was off! Anyway, if you know how to tell the difference then I would appreciate some info.
Thanks in advance, Matt.

Mi piace molto la foto, bello il contrasto con lo sfondo scuro, bravo!
Ciao.

Hi Matt think I have an answer to the question. I think it is a Chiff Chaff, mainly from the leg colour being green and the willow is more red/brown , in both my books and the RSPB web site though I do not think the images there are very good for ident between very close types like these, have alook and see what you think too?

Nice capture looks a fraction soft but I am sure it would sharpen up a fraction.
TFS yours Robert
