Sunday Picture Post: An Uncommon Visitor to Town

Time was, the wheatear was commonly seen, at the least around the rural villages. But I hadn’t seen one for… a very long while. So I was somewhat surprised to see this one, perched on Breydon wall, a spit’s distance from the town.

Wheatear: 28 August 2019

    The bird couldn’t have picked a better background to show off it’s colours. Beautiful composition πŸ™‚ Not that I’m a photographer but the photo is so pleasing. He has a look of curiosity lol

    Cute little guy. Wonder what the explanation is for why they aren’t found in this area so much any more.

    • Lack of breeding environment. Mostly. But I don’t see them in the rurals, either. It’s even possible that this is a migrant, blown off course.
      Reminds me, I rescued a firecrest one winter. Tiny thing. Size of a cottonwool ball you might use for your makeup. It was exhausted. It breeds in the conifer forests of northern Europe/Scandinavia.
