The Stonechat (saxicola torquata)
Captured recently on a visit to one of the local reserve areas. I like him and I hope that you might also.
Grateful and very appreciative thanks for all the c/c's given to the Red Fox. Particular thanks to Keith (KBan), Lillian (Lillian) Alan (Alan Basely) Jane (snappit) and Graham (Gray-Ina) for the User Awards. Most generous.
