Identification

POWERED BY MERLIN

Uncommon to locally fairly common summer migrant from winter grounds in Africa. Favors damp grassy thickets, heaths, and other rank shrubby habitats, often near water. Very skulking, and rarely seen unless singing. Sings from perch in grass or low bush, mainly late in the day (sometimes at night): a prolonged, insectlike, reeling trill. Plumage dark gray-brown overall with wide black streaks on back; also note long undertail coverts with big dark centers.
