Shropshire - Corn Buntings

After sessions concentrating on Ring Ouzels recently, it was back to Buntings and with Cirl in the bag, I realised our local big billed relative had somehow eluded me this year, That is until today.....

The Crudgington area is a local hotspot for Corn Buntings and it wasn't long before a singing pair were picked up.....






Getting a picture can be quite another matter - they are very adept at placing themselves behind every bit of twig and foliage available!








Until lured into doing their Crossbill impression that is.... gotcha!!








Wheatears still following me around today - female at Venus Pool and a pair on Isombridge lane....
