Garden Warbler Sylvia borin L 14-15cm. Has non-descript plumage but an attractive song. Sexes are similar. Adult and juvenile have uniform grey-brown upperparts and pale underparts with buffish wash to breast and flanks. Legs are grey, grey bill is short and stubby, and note subtle grey patch on side of neck (not always easy to see). Voice Call is a sharp chek-chek. Song is rich and warbling; could be confused with Blackcap’s but even more musical and almost thrush-like. Status Fairly common summer visitor to deciduous woodland and mature scrub.
