Stonechats

Cloudy with little sunshine, 19°, breezy WNW.

3 Stonechat still on the hill today, feeding from the leeward side of a hedge and occasionally being hassled by the resident Robin who “owns” that stretch of hedgerow.

30+ Yellowhammer, 3+ Corn Bunting, 2+ Reed Bunting and 5 Mistle Thrush present on the hill.

Just 2 Chiffchaff noted and a single Kestrel.

Reptiles: 1 Common Lizard.

Dragonflies: 6 Common Darter.

Butterflies: 3 Large White.

First 5 photos are all Stonechat. (The 4th courtesy Alan Dawson taken yesterday.)
