Many thanks for the votes and comments on my previous upload, it's always great to have you drop by!

Today's upload is a stonechat taken in RSPB Titchwell a couple of weeks ago. Apparently the reserve took quite a bashing in the recent storm. It's hard to imagine the dunes just being washed away, but that's what happened. Can only hope the birds are okay.

That lens must be heavy!
Brilliant picture of this little chap.
Don't know how you managed to get it to pose against that wonderful background.

Great image Alex, it looks so different without the dunes at Titchwell, there seems to be plenty of birds about still, the worst part is all the rubbish that has been washed onto the reserve along the sea wall.
