Four at the top

Checked the top paddock this evening after work with Paul to find that there were still 4 Whinchat on the fence line. After dropping off Paul I went back on the patch, but this time with my camera. It's never easy to get close to a Whinchat but I tried my best by crawling along the grass and staying low. Just watching them catch flies and hearing them call is what patch birding is all about and if I get good or bad pictures, who cares Whinchats are still cracking birds to watch.


  1. Some nice shots, not the easiest to get near to.

  2. Saw my first whinchat last month and your right they ar cracking birds. ;)
