Nightingale, Hadleigh, May 2004
Nightingales are easy to hear but difficult to see on their breeding grounds in the UK, even
when they first arrive towards the end of April and the trees are not fully leafed up.

This bird sang out in the open for several minutes, offering a rare photographic opportunity.
