Thrush Nightingale

Luscinia luscinia (Linnaeus, 1758)

The Thrush Nightingale (Luscinia luscinia) (formerly colloquially known as Sprosser), is a small passerine bird that was formerly classed as a member of the thrush family Turdidae, but is now more generally considered to be an Old World flycatcher, Muscicapidae. It, and similar small European species, are often called chats. Source: Wikipedia
