Whitethroat

By Mike_Smith
Thank you to Ade 123 and Pamelajean for giving me there user awards on my previous picture, i appreciate it. Today i have a Whitethroat carrying some bugs, obviously feeding youngsters. This was taken last year


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.

What a catch - no pun intended. lol
Like the positioning in the frame and that the habitat is not 'blurred out'.
