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.
