Yesterday I saw my first Whitethroat of the year, which is just about the right time. Many of these warblers will be arriving now having flown all the way from West Africa. The greyish head and white eye ring of this one suggests a male. The “white throat” from which it gets its name is also clearly visible.
I think my collection of Coastguard helicopter photos is now complete with this one taken from directly below as it flew over.
