Stonechats at the Mill

These are different Stonechat than the resident birds I observe in the Parkland area. 
I have used the heading 'Stonechats at the Mill' so that local birding colleagues will know where I shot these images. This pair were making their way along a stretch of riverbank over a distance of approximately 500 metres, which they appear to be using as their winter territory.

  2. Super images Roy. Fantastic little birds, I think it's the pose and the stare that draws us in and then just compels us to take their photo!...[;o)

  6. Really beautiful pictures of the Roodborsttapuit. I hope to meet them again. You have to have a good telephoto lens to get them so beautifully sharp in the picture.

    1. Its a micro four thirds lens equivalent to a 600mm f4. Helma.
