Not had much chance to get out with the camera lately due to lack of free time.

Here's a shot from a few weeks back of a Wheatear on the south coast getting ready for the migration south. I'd never seen these before, not being that much of a birder, and was surprised how approachable they were. After a bit of time and patience I could get within about 6-7m of them on the sea wall.
