Plate 1 from the paper "An account of an English bird of the genus Motacilla, supposed to be hitherto unnoticed by British ornithologists", by John Lightfoot, Philosophical Transactions of the Royal Society, vol.75 (1785), pp.8-15. Study of the bird classified and described by John Lightfoot FRS (1735-1788) clergyman and naturalist in a letter to Sir Joseph Banks, as Motacilla arundinacea [Acrocephalus arundinaceus]. The bird is shown nesting in a "trifurcated branch of a Syringa bush, or Philadelphus, growing in a garden hedge by the river side." The nest incorporates thread or twine in its construction. A detail of an egg appears lower right. Inscribed in pencil upper right "Tab 1" and verso "Tab I Vol.75". Initialled in ink by the artist, lower left "WP Pxt." [?]

Original: watercolour on vellum. ca. 1784
