Lesser Whitethroat
Tjeldstø, Øygarden, Norway. June 2010

Lesser Whitethroat are quite a common breeder in Øygarden and are also a regular autumn migrant.  Herdlevær and Hernar are probably the best places to see this species outside the breeding season. During the spring and summer they can be encountered "anywhere" with some trees - often in sunnier glades.
