I had a little drive around the moors of Cheshire at the weekend. I was mainly looking for Golden Plover up above Wildboarclough. I didn't see any, but I did hear one or two. They're quite difficult to pick out against the light grass and heathers and with dull conditions. I'll return at a later date and on a sunnier day to find them.
A little bird did make me pull over as I drove home though. A nice looking male Stonechat. Of course, once parked up and out of the car it took flight. I managed to track it down though, and watched for a few minutes as it flitted about. Great little birds.
A lovely Bird, a wonderful capture.ReplyDelete
They are cracking little birds Adam. There has been a strong passage of them around here in the past two weeks.ReplyDelete

I would like to convey my thanks for your sharing of this wonderful bird and photo today and adding your link at I'd Rather B Birdin'. It's always a pleasure visiting with you. The male is quite handsome and he posed for you so well to show off its colors.
Hello Adam, what a beautiful bird. Great shot! Thank you for linking up and sharing your post. Happy Sunday, enjoy your new week ahead!ReplyDelete

Yes, it's wonderful! So hard to get photos of the flighty ones!ReplyDelete
