Wheatear

Last year was an exceptional spring for Wheatears and Serpentine BP had a fair few of them. This female is the first I've seen so far this year. Hopefully there are many more to come.

Not a great pic I know but it's another example of how it's now possible to get a record shot of sorts under appalling conditions. It was dull and misty and the bird was miles away but it is still recognisable.
