Common Whitethroat on Flat Holm

A rather nice shot of an immature Common Whitethroat taken on Flat Holm in early August 2011 by Sam Whitfield.

Nice - do they breed on the Island?

I haven't heard of a breeding record for FH and the habitat there isn't really good enough, just elder scrub. I do know that a lot move through on passage, so I imagine that this individual was just a passage migrant there. I'll try and find out more.
