With reports of Wheatear on the Malverns
during last week I thought I'd go a take a
look. I popped up on Thursday and found
a total of six. It was good mixture of adult
and juvenile all looking in good condition
and feeding quite well.
I did try for a few photo's but there was
very little light in the evening. The whole
was more or less in full shade. I thought I'd
leave it till the weekend.
all to no avail. The only thing I could find
good amount of Wheatear beening around
for most of August. Hopefully this won't be
the only chance I get.
I moved on to where the Redstarts have
been for the past few months breeding not
really expecting to see them, thinking they
may have already moved on, but to my
place and like previous times before the
first bird on the scene was a Robin.
After a few mouthfuls of mealworm the
Robin disappeared. It was long after the
first Redstart appeared - A female.
