I was enjoying myself so much, with lots going on that I'd forgotten about looking for these. So I was quite surprised when one popped up in front of me. The distinctive supercilium over the eye gave away Whinchat to me.
I think I spent a goof half an hour watching a pair here. They were busy collecting insects for some young not too far away. A great start to the day.
These were both ringed. I contacted RSPB Geltsdale and they confirmed that they have an active ringing program on site. Hopefully they will be able to give me a little more information on these birds soon.
