Sardinian Warbler - Les Baux, December 2018

Common as boue, I know, but deserving of a quick special post I think on account of their very ubiquity, gorgeousness and characterful nature.

They're pretty much everywhere here - just when you think you're alone, the bush next to you emits a tell-tale rattle - but getting a half-decent shot has eluded me, until the other day up at Les Baux. Everything seems to sit out and wait to be photographed there, and this bird dropped in above my head and in plain sight in a busy street in the settlement, even readjusting so the background and sunlight were perfect....
