Stonechat (Saxicola torquata)
|[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note|
|I have often seen these little birds but always found it difficult to get close enough for a decent picture, this one was quite obliging.|
Stonechats are frequently seen flicking their wings while perched, often doing so on the tops of low bushes. As its name suggests, birds utter a sharp loud call that sound like two stones being tapped together. They breed in western and southern parts of the UK, but disperse more widely in winter. Although the species is not faring too badly in the UK, it is doing less well on the continent and is of European conservation concern.
