Hi all,
Today's upload is a Stonechat. Taken at a bird sanctuary in Eilat(who'd have thought it!). There were plenty of other birds such as Black-winged stilts and redshanks but a lot of them I couldn't get close to. I also photographed a bluethroat and I think I may have a good shot of a redshank but I'm not sure.
Thanks for the C&C's on the white-crowned black wheatear by the way.
Hope you like it.
Sam.
