Chiffchaff or Willow warbler

I know that the first chiffchaff's have arrived back into the area as I have heard them, the one in the picture didn't make any noises (calls) so I am unsure. any suggestions would be greatly appreciated. it was feeding very briefly hopping almost throughout the tree, does what its feeding on give any clue to its identity?

For me it's a chiff, head shape, leg colour and feather colouration.
