Distribution: Widespread but not common summer visitor from Africa, breeding throughout the UK (except far N of Scotland) and Europe.
Habitat: Preferred habitat is thick tussock grassland, scrub and thickets. Particularly where long grass grows up through thorn bushes.
Notes: The Grasshopper Warbler is a difficult bird to locate despite it's loud and very distinctive call. The bird appears to have the ability to 'throw' it's voice, making it even harder to pin-point. Usually seen low down and skulking, the birds streaked appearance, lack of eye stripe and distinctive call will be enough to confirm identification.
