Blueberry plant - leaves turning brown

This is a Bluecrop blueberry plant. No idea why leaves on some branches gone brown? I have another blueberry plant different variety and it is mostly green but some new small branches gone brown. Any clues?

    I can't tell you exactly what the cause of the dieback is (although the 1st photo looks like the twig has been physically snapped close to the stem at some point), but would advise that you remove all affected parts by cutting them back to the main stem, or back to healthy green wood, just in case it's a disease.  Dead material on blueberries needs removing whenever you see it.
    A trowel in the hand is worth a thousand lost under a bush.
