Warblers and allies (Sylviidae)
Where to see them
The lesser whitethroat is a fairly secretive warbler which lives in areas of scrub and hedges. It's found in England, Wales and southern Scotland, but absent from upland areas.
When to see them
They start to arrive in the UK from April and most leave the country by mid-October.
What they eat
Insects in spring and summer; in autumn, these warblers feed up on berries to build up their fat reserves before migration.
