Willow Warbler

The Willow Warbler is the most widespread and most common of British summer visitors. It nests in most parts of the country, even in areas that don’t contain many trees.

Has very similar plumage to the Chiffchaff but look out for brown legs as this usually indicates that it’s a Willow Warbler.

They overwinter in tropical and southern Africa which means they arrive back in the UK later than Chiffchaffs as they have further to travel.

Eats spiders, small insects, fruit and berries.
