Identification

POWERED BY MERLIN

Common summer migrant from winter grounds in Africa. Found in scrubby habitats from coastal heaths and low hedges to bramble thickets on waste ground. Rather retiring, like most warblers, but jerky climbing display flight often draws attention. Plumage brownish overall with bright rusty wings; grayer head has narrow whitish eyering and sets off white throat, which often looks a little puffy.
