Worthwhile Half Hour

Stonechats - Dung Field.
Got home, from a very busy day at work, to a text from Terry Smith about two wheatears on Orcombe Point. I had just a 45 minute window, before football training with Joel, but it was well worthwhile. Not only were there 3 wheatears in the field where Terry had his, there were 3 stonechats in the dung field and a black redstart in the Bristol Schools Camp. Additionally I got 1 chiffchaff and 6 meadow pipit - a little frustrating to have missed the best part of what had obviously been a good day.

Black Redstart on a fence.

Next to some hand soap.

On a roof.

On a barbie.

The wheatears just wouldn't play ball, and with the light fading I had to make do with awful distant record shots. Still it's always good to get the first wheatears of the year.
