The Garden Warbler, Sylvia borin, is a common and widespread typical warbler which breeds throughout northern and temperate Europe into western Asia. This small passerine bird is strongly migratory, and winters in central and southern Africa. It is fairly common and widespread in England and Wales; in Ireland it is largely confined to the midlands where it breeds on the shores of small lakes.
This is a nondescript bird, 13-14.5 cm long, mainly brown-grey above and whitish below. It has no obvious distinctive features. Like most "warblers", it is insectivorous. It is a species of shady woodlands with ground cover for nesting. The nest is built in low shrub or brambles, and 3-7 eggs are laid.

What a magificent bird image again from you, Fikret!
Your use of tripod makes your pictures matchless in terms of sharpness and precision.
Superb use of ambient light. The lichen-covered branches add a great deal to the beauty of the composition.

Hello Fikret
Beautiful capture and presentation. Great composition and lighting.Lovely colors and great details.
Thank You
Best regards

Hallo Fikret
Not only is the bird in your image so lovely, I like the sunlight that highlights everything so beautifully. In addition to that the lichen on the branch is beautiful and adds to the beauty of the composition as Ram also mentioned in his critique. Thanks for sharing a great image. Best regards.
