Sunset Stonechat

Male Stonechat at Papercourt Meadows

Sunset Stonechat

The birds have been putting on some great displays down at Surrey Wildlife Trust’s Papercourt Meadows! I’ve now had two wonderful sightings of the Short-eared Owl this year, along with the beautiful barn owls. It’s been great chatting to some of the other local birders and photographers down there too! Light was quite poor when it came out to hunt so I shall keep trying to get a good, clear photograph! Before we lost the sun on Saturday evening, the stonechats all darted across the grasses to come to roost in a thicket of brambles. They were joined by meadow pipit and wrens as a couple of kestrels flew overhead and tawny owls called from the woodland. This male stonechat was looking absolutely resplendent in his bold breeding plumage! This is my entry for the Fotospeed challenge today. Have a wonderful week everyone!
