The Bluethroat (white spotted) is more likely to be found in the western and central regions of Europe, along the south-western coast of France to the southern borders of Portugal and Spain.
The Bluethroat is a member of the flycatcher family. It is usually found in a bushy environment of willows and shrubs, near water. Nest in open tundra, where it can be observed perched at the top of short trees. Perches itself above the growth, where it may be singing or preying upon flying insects.
