Please can you hlp me identify this bird which I have seen in the hedge in my garden.
this looks like either a Chiffchaff - http://www.rspb.org.uk/discoverandenjoynature/discoverandlearn/birdguide/name/c/chiffchaff/ or Willow warbler- http://www.rspb.org.uk/discoverandenjoynature/discoverandlearn/birdguide/name/w/willowwarbler/index.aspx
my suspiceon is it is a young chiffchaff, but I can't be sure.
In the field, the song tells them apart.
Was it a sort of descending liquid warbling or 'chif-chaf, chif-chaf...'?
Both are available at this page
