White Throat

By ianrobinson    
Ok back to the Wildlife, and this little fella is the White throat singing out a wonderful tune.

This the Common White throat.

Latin name is ( Sylviidae )

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.
