Willow Warbler

Observation - Willow Warbler - UK and Ireland. Description: An adult female, well into its post-breeding moult. The whole tail is regrowing and the main primary wing feathers are variously old still, or in pin, or almost fully grown, new feathers. Adults at this time can look very scruffy indeed!
