Whitethroat

By Mike_Smith
Today a Whitethroat, i spotted two of these in and out of a bush obviously feeding young ones. As it happens it was ten yards from a nesting pair i noticed last year, maybe same pair.
Thank you to everyone who clicked and commented on my last upload.

The Whitethroat is a medium-sized warbler, about the size of a great tit. It has quite a long tail which it flicks and cocks as it darts rapidly in and out of cover. The male has a grey head, a white throat and a brown back, and is buff underneath. It is a summer visitor and passage migrant, with birds breeding widely, although it avoids urban and mountainous areas. It winters in Africa, south of the Sahara.

Might have been worth cropping a bit off the RHS, but that is just MHOWink
