Bird of the Day: Stonechat

The stonechat decribes its call, in that it sounds like two pebbles being struck together, and is heard most frequently from conspicuous posts and perches.

Bird of the day: Waxwing

Waxwings are on my Ultimate Ticklist…I may weep if I actually saw one, and that goes double if I have my binoculars with me. I know they have been seen not infrequently here in East Sussex but sadly I have not had the pleasure. 396 weitere Wörter
