Desert Wheatear

As promised a new post. I haven't much chance to get
up onto the hills in recent weeks so when news broke
of the Desert Wheatear on Titterstone I couldn't wait
to go and have a look.

I made my first visit the day it was first seen but I didn't
get there till late on, in fact it was near dark. Although
it was pretty gloomy I manage to get some pretty
good views but only managed a few record shot's
with the camera it was then I promised myself another

It wasn't until the day before it left that I managed
another visit, it took a little while to locate but eventually
I got some cracking views with the bird only a few
yards away at times.

It remained pretty mobile throughout the time I was
there and feeding extremley well considering the frost
we had. It managed to catch quiet a few earthworms
from the frozen ground, I guess getting ready for the

A few photo's from the day.
