Phylloscopus trochilus, Willow Warbler, Løvsanger. 11cm.

Willow Warbler
A common summer visitor which is found in large numbers in the birch forests and the willow belt above that.

It is an active and restless bird constantly darting from bush to bush looking for insects and their larvae.

They nest on the ground, usually in a domed grass and leaf nest beside a hummock.

Almost identical to the chiffchaff, but has darker legs.
