[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
Old World Warblers - Phylloscopus collybita

A common summer visitor, with birds arriving from March onwards. This is a typical leaf warbler in appearance, 10-12 cm long, greenish brown above and off-white below. It is very similar to the Willow Warbler, Phylloscopus trochilus, but non-singing birds can be distinguished from that species by their dark legs, fine dark bill, dumpy shape and short primary projection. They also dip their tail much more oftena repetitive cheerful. The song is very characteristic, a repetitive cheerful "chiff-chaff".
The Chiffchaff's nest is built in low shrub, and the four to seven eggs are incubated by the female for 13-14 days to hatching, with another 14-15 days until the chicks fledge. The male is inquisitive and fearless, attacking dangerous predators like the Stoat if they approach the nest.

Hola amigo.
Una lástima las ramas en primer término que distraen la atención sobre el pájaro, pero un buen trabajo dado el objetivo utilizado.
Buena nitidez y acertado DoF.
Un cordial saludo, JL.
