Many of our sites are lowland wet site and as a consequence we capture few Lesser Whitethroat and very few  recoveries; those captured are usually on migration.

Recapture is infrequent.

The Mediterranean map shows a recovery in the Lebanon of a bird ringed at Hungerford.

The Lesser Whitethroat breeds throughout Europe and across much of temperate western Asia. It is strongly migratory and the UK population winters south of the Sahara and in Central Africa. It is thought that migration has an easterly bias; around/across the eastern Mediterranean.

Its habitat is farmland hedgerows and scrub. It is inconspicuous with a skulking nature, the tuneless rattle of its song is the usual indication of its presence
