Willow Warbler - Feeding Time

This Willow Warbler was visiting a row of Blackthorn trees and making a repetitive 'tweet' call.
It soon became obvious that it was calling an immature in order to feed it. This continued on for several minutes while I was there as the bird made several return visits with food.
