A good variety of birds caught through the morning although almost 50% were Willow Warblers. Good to see a large number of juveniles, which hopefully means they are having a good year. We were able to compare a number of birds and we did notice that while most had uniformly lemon yellow breast feathers, some were distinctly streaky and could be a challenge to age later in the year if caught again.

Maybe I'm being a little anthropomorphic but I get the distinct impression that the Treecreeper does not look too impressed with being caught and photographed.
