Whinchat hunt brings a Whinchat!
9th September - well it had to happen eventually I suppose and better late than never. A quick lunchtime check of the paddocks failed again, though 5 Yellow Wagtails were fairly close in feeding around cattle. One digibinned below:
I then checked the same weedy fields as yesterday and finally success as a single Whinchat was feeding from the fence line next to the athletics track. Coincidentally, this is the exact same spot as one I had last year and on exactly the same date. I took one lousy record shot and then my camera battery died, which is a shame, still you can see what it is.
