Warbler In My Garden on 5th & 27th September 2009

Warblers in my garden are rather uncommon, although we did have a regularly visiting male Blackcap last winter, and one briefly earlier this autumn. I was, therefore surprised to see a Willow Warbler or Chiffchaff (I suspect the former) busily flitting about in our trees picking off insects and spiders. I do not know if this was the same bird (it looked the same to me, and behaved in the same way) as my sightings were more than three weeks apart (although I could have missed it during the intervening period). Being constantly on the move it was difficult to photograph, but if anyone can positively identify it from these rather poor images, I would be very grateful.
