Stonechats at St Aldhelm's

Stonechats are wonderfully curious birds. They seem to like to know what is going on. Other birds often sing from inside a bush, and are hard to spot. In contrast Stonechats will find the highest point and sing from there. Better yet, often as you walk to investigate they will fly to a perch nearer to take a good look at you.

Last week at St Aldhelm's head I met a couple who were very tame indeed allowing me to get closer than usual. An absolute delight to see.



  1. Oh Ian he is so adorable, and excellent shot. Anna :)

  2. Fantastic shot Ian. I've seen some in Morocco but could not get a nice shot like this!


Thanks to everyone who takes the time to comment on my blog!
