Whitethroat

I went searching for migrating species around the Parkland on a hot sunny day.
It was good to find this Whitethroat feeding away on Blackberries and Elderberries in the sunshine.
It needs to build its strength up for the long journey South to the Southern edge of the Sahara Desert.
Fortunately there is copious amounts of both of these berries around at the moment.
