The Celebrity

I did say the previous post about the temporary local resident Stonechat was going to be the last.
However, he is such a star that you can't resist taking another shot as you walk by his little patch in the Parkland. Dependent on the prevailing light his colourings and overall markings show up differently. He is also changing into his Spring coat.

I'm guessing he will be gone soon moving North, but he certainly lived and ate well whilst here. 
He would also have been photographed/observed many times during his stay by local Birders and visitors alike.

  2. Stunning little bird, and it's markings show well in both photos, could easily be misted thinking it was just a Sparrow form a distance..

    1. Thanks Amanda. He is quite unmistakable once you have seen, but the female could be at a distance.
