........and LESSER WHITETHROAT makes it 244

It’s 244.

This Lesser Whitethroat has been visiting my fathers garden in Nottingham on and off since before Christmas. We think it’s blythi or halimodendri.

It hasn’t been seen for 2 weeks but reappeared yesterday. There was an attempt to mist-net over the Christmas holiday but it didn’t appear the day the ringer was there (it rained a lot)

The footage my father has is on his old (tape) camcorder and the picture was taken of the image on TV with my camera phone which is why it looks odd. Now the bird has reappeared we will try to mist net again to ascertain it’s racial identity.
