1. Thank you. Another lucky find for me, I was heading back home after a photo walk and they were just flitting about in a tree near the bridleway. I didn’t hear them calling.

  2. Willow warblers look almost exactly the same, and the two are best told apart by their song. But chiffchaffs have shorter wings - they don’t extend as far down the tail as on willow warblers. So I’d tentatively agree chiffchaff here.

  3. I had this exact same question yesterday. There was one with a mixed flock of tits and I couldn't see any distinguishing features to look it up by but the RSPB online identifier said chiffchaff. They are tricky birds to follow, they keep moving.
