Although I've seen & heard Willow Warblers since the end of March, I was not able to actually photograph one until last weekend during a walk near a disused quarry. The charming little bird settled perfectly in a Blackthorn bush, allowing me to include blossom within the frame.

Friends Paul (PaulB45) & Scott (EASTFIELD) who were with me on the day, have recently featured the same bird in their own PFs.

This Willow Warbler was the subject of my last upload "Warbler with Fly" & I'm grateful for the interest you may have shown.

A smashing perch for this pretty little Willow Warbler to pose on.
