Whitethroat (Sylvia communis)

A summer visitor to the UK, likes low dense cover such as hedges or young plantations with patches of bramble or rose. It feeds mainly on insects migrating to the Sahel region of North Africa. It has a scratchy song with an unmusical jumble of notes and a parachuting song flight. The four or five eggs hatch after 11 days.
