Lesser Whitethroat

Probably my favourite subjects to photograph are the difficult, secretive birds that are usually heard, but not seen. Grasshopper warblers, Cettis warblers and Lesser whitethroat are typical of these. I enjoy the challenge of getting a  clear shot of one. This picture may not be perfect, but I am pleased with it and it is my first digital Lesser whitethroat. It took 10 hours of waiting for while the bird sang inside the hedge. I saw it pop out onto this branch twice and positioned myself there in case it did it a third time. It eventually did. Pity it did not sing while there.
