Eurasian/ Northern Wryneck


When you try and describe a Wryneck, it doesn't really sound that exciting or colourful. 
However, when you actually photograph one and look at the images you have taken, it is a whole different story. 
The beautiful and varied feather pattern is something to behold. 
I was fortunate for the first time to photograph one this week.






 







The shot below is a screen grab from a video I filmed.

  2. Terrific shots, and what a good spot. I follow the Skokholm Blog http://skokholm.blogspot.com/ and they ringed one and showed a clip of it moving its head, and hence its name.
