Poss Common Nightingale

Not sure with this view but it could be a Nightingale. The tail shape seems to suggest some sort of thrush. Nightingales can look very plain when on a perch. Best I can do sorry!

Just go out there and do it!!!

I might have guessed at

I might have guessed at Garden Warbler on first viewing, although I can't find any supporting evidence for this! Definite Little Brown Job!

My first impression was Garden Warbler

It could be a Garden Warbler, but there is no way to be sure from the photo. If it is, the date given for the observation (March 19th) is very early - typically the only warblers around by this date are Chiffchaff and Blackcaps.
