Blue Tits and Warbler

Here’s another selection of the smaller garden birds that are plentiful at this time of year. Two species today: the blue tit, which is unmistakeable with its blue cap and bandit mask. The second bird is a warbler, but whether it’s a chiffchaff or willow warbler I really cannot tell. The easiest way to distinguish the two species is by their song, but this one was silent throughout its visit.
