Description:

I did wonder briefly whether this bird (and the Chiffchaff before it) were going for a dust bath, but I think not. The Chiffchaff was off the ground anyway, and I quite often visit this spot, and the only time I've seen this behaviour is on a warm sunny day.
This is on a south facing shingle bank at the edge of woodland.
