The Eastern Black-eared Wheatear had relocated to a field near a caravan site and thankfully it was perched up on arrival and what a stunner!! Seriously distant for photography but who cares eh!
Here's my woeful attempts to capture the bird but you can see why it was so popular!
A perfect blend of black and white!
Using this stump as a favoured perch to launch after insects.....
Chasing a butterfly?
And nearly catching it - maybe it did??
Almost got the tail pattern but you can see the partly black sides.
It was getting on and with a long journey beckoning we set off back to the car
Feeling a bit peckish - I had a treat in store!!
What a fantastic day! Another mega in the bag, all lifers and the best trio I'll probably ever add to my list in a day (incredibly, all seen in a period just over 4 hours!!) Thanks to Ian for driving and Martin / Judy as ever great company with quite a few laughs :-)
