Chiffchaff?

Chiffchaff

A new visitor to the garden today. It was a very active bird jumping from one plant to another eating any insects it found. Looking at my bird book, it looks like a Chiffchaff. It was about the size of a Robin. If anyone has any other ideas of what it is, please let me know.

Blue Tit in tree

Blue Tit

A busy day in the garden today, at times it was like Piccadilly Circus around the feeders today. The weather is quite dark and gloomy hence the rather grainy shot of a Blue Tit eating a sunflower kernel.
