Pls also let us know where and when it was photographed.

It looks like it is perched on a hawthorn/blackthorn twig.

I agree, which makes it unlikely that the photo is from Hong Kong.
Well, that and the fact that it is a singing spring male.

a other mystere is that the pic has changed with the original one on this post showing a immature standing on the ground in a small track...

If you right-click on the photo and then click on 'Properties', you can see that the photo was taken in Armenia in May 2007 and is from the Birding World website.
