If it hangs around your area then at some stage it will sing. I have a chiff chaff flitting round my garden at the moment. You can hear it singing at times.
Oh there is a video as well.

In that case - willow warbler. The other photos were less good but yes that is a detail I picked out on one of them - a fairly faint but noticeable golden bar.Thanks all

John, as others have commented, it's the song that counts... my own visual id via that bar is unreliable, though I'm happy with it. Others have similar and some WW don't show this which starts to become awkward..... listen to those recordings Halo's linked..... you only have to hear the chiffchaff because it's unmistakable.
Just don't ask for an ID on a possible marsh tit/ willow tit. These are almost impossible to id by every method except dna!
