A long way to fly

Lesser Whitethroat

I was fortunate enough to visit east Africa in January 2008, and one morning was sure I saw a Lesser Whitehroat sitting on a branch. I was surprised because it is difficult to see them in the UK, but I assumed that this little chap (not the one photographed) was some local African bird, maybe an east African whitethroat or something.

Then I read this week that the Lesser Whitehroat does indeed migrate to the Horn of Africa, after all.
