The Dartford Warbler (sylvia undata)
Delighted to get just a couple of shots recently of this shy, elusive and secretive little Warbler. Strong direct light from the right was a bit of a problem but I hope you will like him.

As usual my very grateful and appreciative thanks for all c/c's given to 'You have been Framed'. My particular thanks to Brian ( bricurtis) for his UA.

Hope you are all enjoying a lovely warm w/e.We have waited a long time for it.

Ron

You have captured the Warbler and it's gorse perch in such crisp detail, Ron, and with all the elements so nicely disposed across and arranged within the frame.
