I'll bet you live in a tranquil place, somewhere you can get shots of the Stonechat.

Cracking shots of a bird I don't see on my patch. Well done Sharon.

Great pics Sharon. Stonechats are real characters - for such a tiny animal they don't seem too afraid of us humans.

Love stonechats, and your shots of this one are great.

Lsst September, I spotted a juvenile at the estuary here, so I hope to see adults there this year.

Fantastic photos Sharon the last one is outstanding. Clear, sharp and an obliging pose, who could ask for more, brilliant. Well done.
