LBJ from Par.

Stonechat ....Saxicola torquata
Photographed at Par Dunes.


  1. Yet another bird I have never seen, there are so many...sigh! I don't think we see them in our area but I hear there was one spotted at Draycote recently, I bet it won't be there next time I go :(
    A lovely photo again Trevor.

  2. Hi SSB.
    The Stonechat is so numerous around the Baywatch site that I have to stop and think...maybe it is rare around the Midlands and the land locked counties...I do not know. They often perch on the top of Gorse Bushes and are quite human tolerant compared to many other species. Hence my many close ups.

  3. Thanks John. I have seen some great Stonechat shots on your blog as well.

  4. Hi Bhavesh.

    Yes indeed ...and a great favourite of mine.
