Description:

Heartening to see a breeding pair on my local heath today. A few perished over the hard winter (though the Stonechat population seems to have fared even worse - haven't seen one where there used to be a good half dozen). You can see the male has a juicy caterpillar. The female is the one in the birch tree.

Surprised to see...

...this is the first photo observation of this bird on iSpot. I know they are a) localised and b) very skulky - but would have still expected a few to be posted by now.
