Identity crisis

On the 6th May I heard a very unusual bird song coming from scrub behind my back yard. At first I thought I was listening to a Chiffchaff but the song ended like that of Willow Warbler. I managed to entice the bird closer and in to my garden by imitating the call of Willow Warbler and this ploy seemed to work. Attached are a couple of photos of the bird taken from my garden as it sang from my neighbours Rowan. I'm uncertain as to the identity of the bird in question, it looked very Willow Warbler like with the exception of having  darkish legs. I'll post video of the song if I'm successful in downloading it onto my PC, fingers crossed.
