Grasshopper Warbler by Peter Harris
It's that time of year again when arriving spring migrants are full of song and, judging by the fantastic array of singing birds posted this week in the BirdGuides galleries, our contributors have been making the most of this seasonal opportunity.
This week's winner, a stunning portrait of a 'reeling' Grasshopper Warbler by Peter Harris, encapsulates this.
Captured in perfect profile as it perches unobscured on a gorse bush, the uncluttered background and beautiful light ensure that this is just about as good an image as you can hope to take of this typically retiring species.
Congratulations to Peter, who took his winning shot with a 400 mm lens, shooting at 1/1000 th second, f5.6 on ISO400.
