Kindrogan FSC Field Centre, Enochdhu, Perthshire, Scotland  56Ί 44' 53.7'' N  03Ί 33' 02.4'' W  11 June 2015

Territorial song composed of two trilling phrases and a terminal flourish from a tree-fall area in a Sitka Spruce plantantion, bordering a slightly more open area with a few Sessile Oaks and Silver Birches. Song perches ranged from 2.5 to 10 metres. This individual had only one song type (~2.2 secs). Of a one hour recording (~263 strophes), it sang for 45 minutes and was silent for 15 mins (5.8 strophes/min during the active singing period). Song matching with neighbours. Subsequent observation failed to locate a female (though possibly incubating).
