This gives a better idea of the size of my mystery visitor who came for the second day running

Whitethroat and Garden Warbler are same size and same as Dunnock :)

I still say Whitethroat because of the secondaries and tertials (looking these up in a book) and alula (that dark pointed feather on the outside edge of the wing). Could be a lesser Whitethroat of course.

Either way I think that's one of the best photos you've taken, Sheila.

Good picture Sheila, taken with the Dunnock gives one an idea of the size of your mystery bird, I still think it is a Whitethroat.

I'm positive it is either a Whitethroat or a Lesser Whitethroat Sheila, whichever it is I'm really envious. Lovely photos too!

ShySongbird said...

Hi again Sheila, I have left a comment on Warren's site at Pittswood Birds to ask him to have a look at your bird, he is very knowledgeable.

shysongbird thanks for taking the trouble to ask on my behalf,very kind

Hi Shiela,
Shysongbird asked me to look at your mystery bird. I can tell you it's a Whitethroat, nice species to have in the garden. Some great pics of the other birds to! I'll pop over to visit you more often!

Yes definately a whitethroat. The lesser whitethroat has darker legs, so that's one way of distinguishing, apart from the size. The pale eye is a clue too.
