All my birds seem to be miles away today. This is one of a pair of willow warblers (my first of the season) on an island in Seven Island Pond. The pictures are lousy but if you squint a bit and use your imagination you can see a suggestion of long primary projection in the first one and, more convincingly I’ll admit, in the second you can see the light coloured legs. Unfortunately not singing, much more interested in hawking after insects.

I’ll take the scope next time and see if I can digiscope them.
