[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
The Willow Warbler (Phylloscopus trochilus) is a very common and widespread leaf warbler which breeds throughout northern and temperate Europe and Asia, from Ireland east to the Anadyr River basin in eastern Siberia. It is strongly migratory, with almost all of the population wintering in sub-Saharan Africa.[2][3]
It is a bird of open woodlands with trees and ground cover for nesting, including most importantly birch, alder, and willow habitats. The nest is usually built in close contact with the ground, often in low vegetation. Like most Old World warblers, this small passerine is insectivorous.[3] In northern Europe, it is one of the first warblers to return in the spring though is later than the closely related Chiffchaff Phylloscopus collybita.

Beautiful warbler, good image. tfs.

Hi Szabo,
a nice picture of the nice little bird our most common bird up here in the summer.
Maybe the POV is not the best, but what to do when the birds sitting high up. :-)
Good sharpness and very nice colours.
Well done.

Buna Jozsef,
O imagine foarte buna surprinsa in culori placute in ciuda luminii care pare ca nu a fost tocmai stralucita. Detaliile si claritatea sunt si ele excelente.
Numai bine,
