Wheatear

I've not seen a Wheatear for a few months. To be honest though, I've not really been anywhere that they would be. I made a long awaited trip to Macclesfield at the weekend. I love this place. A real variety of habitat, from fast flowing rivers, reservoirs and forest to upland moors and craggy slopes.
I stumbled across this chap, who then proceeded to show me the way along this dry stone wall.
I didn't catch his name, but was more than happy for him to stop by and help me out.

  3. How rude not to ask his name - in the end I reckon he showed you a white bum as a result - am I correct?
