Wild birds of Ireland - Grasshopper Warbler

The Grasshopper Warbler is a migratory bird of the Warbler family that arrives in Ireland in spring each year from Africa to breed. They are an elusive & very secretive species rarely seen, preferring to remain hidden in undergrowth only revealing their presence with a distinctive mechanical call that resembles a fishing reel. Both male and females are similar in appearance being a rather dull brown beige colour with some black spotting on their back and under parts. Their diet mainly consists of insects while their preferred habitat is damp, rough grassland, young forestry plantations and open scrub-land. Grasshopper Warblers are scarce but well distributed in Ireland however they are declining due to habitat loss.
