I used to say most of the birds round here were troglodytes, surprised I didn't work it out sooner

Blue tit size that one, when I've seen wrens they've always been in groups, and not much bigger than a squash ball.
I'll see what I can do to clean that image up shortly, I'm trying to filter what I want out of a few thousand on the card

Pictures

Greater spotted as discussed.

Bottom one looks like a wren to me, with the tail, was it a tiny bird?

I won't be lounging in the garden in a T-Shirt and shorts today, cold and windy out

Not very detailed and I'm not sure this is the same bird, it just happened to land on the fence while I had the camera to hand. I might see if I can get a bit more detail out on the computer later. This could be a dunnock but I remember the little one being a flatter/smoother colour

Edit, I think the bottom one is a female tree sparrow, not the one I'm trying to Id, that one is smaller, a more brown colour

Just done some quick and dirty edits in the camera, a couple of the shots aren't too bad considering it was 70 ish yds away in fading light, I've had too many ciders to put a pic on here now tho
Glorious weather in London today🌞

There the ones!

Fished one water a few times and there used to be a flock of green ones that used to turn up, like little penguins waddling down the bank for a drink

You may well be right with it being a Warbler of some type, pretty difficult to identify as there are quite a few in the Warbler genus

I'd have to get a photo of it to Id it I think, skittish little blighter tho.
Wren sort of size, similar sounding but the colour like the warbler in the link, and I only see one, wrens I've always seen in groups, it's annoying me now

Tend to be a flat greyish/ brown chest on a Dunnock. Has a fast flick of the tail like a wagtail. Could be a female Linnet or Greenfinch in that environment mate.
My mother gets regular woodpeckers on her feeders, Greater spotted, stunning bird.
