Definately a CHAT fron the look of the breast.

A good one at that.

Nice composition and presentation. Just missed a little with the focus point.

Lovely shot... yep looks like a young Stonechat... Maybe I would have cropped more from the left hand side so there is more space on the side the bird is looking at, (rule of thirds, an' all that)

Lovely that you caught the beak open. I can almost hear it.

I agree with the space but with this bird it can be very difficult to get close to at times. Try to get the focus point on the eye or as close.
IMHO this is a great capture as fully aware how difficult they can be to get
