Sardinian Warbler at Porto Cristo Novo



The ubiquitous bird of the area. These were seen and heard everywhere, including this one that again was seen every morning in a tree outside our apartment. The 'scratchy' song was very obvious, similar to that of its cousin, the Common Whitethroat and by the end of the week it was somewhat ingrained in our minds!

  2. Now if I'd briefly seen one over here, I'd have put it down as a Common Whitethroat. I'll never make a birdwatcher.
    Nice looking bird John.

  3. Great looking bird - hard to imagine that it is so common - I seem to recall dipping out on the bird in the past in the UK.

    Feel free to link this post up to Wild Bird Wednesday (along with about 50 other bird bloggers) on my photo-blog.

    1. Thanks Stewart! I think if one turned up in the U.K. it would be a fairly large twitch!
