What a gorgeous day it was today, clear sunlit cloudless skies and warm temperatures ( 10 deg C ) for the time of year.
I knew that Stonechats were present in one of the reserves reed beds so I decided to occupy the hide and sit it out for a while.
Sure enough before too long the female pitched up for a look, Stonechats are a bit like Robins being curious and reasonably comfortable in the presence of people.
This little lady posed in a number of different positions in the late afternoon light, I did see the male bird but sadly he stayed at a distance.
An added bonus was some good images of a Wren.
Classic pose with fanned tail.
