Whitethroat

By Maiwand
The Whitethroat ( sylvia communis )

Finally managed to catch one or two of the little creatures at the right moment and in some decent light; albeit a damn cold morning.GrinGrin
This one obligingly rested for a few moments on a lovely , very natural, perch with a great bonus of deciding to burst forth in song. I hope you will find something about it that you will enjoy.

Most grateful thanks for the tremendous response to the Blue Tit. Very much appreciated.

Ron
