|Taken by Ben Porter - Icterine Warbler|
Icterine can be easily confused with the very similar Melodious Warbler, but can be determined by its longer wings and well marked wing panel with its paler edges to the primaries, secondaries and tertials. Another note to take is its square-shaped end to its tail. This bird, to me looks like a juvenile bird with its more dull-brown appearance to its upperparts. An adult would appear a lot brighter in a green-yellow colour
This is another 'Iccy' taken at Spurn point a couple of years ago. Notice the bill size, comparing to that of Willow Warbler or Chiffchaff, the bill is a lot more stoat and slightly longer.
