I have had a lot more free time from university so I went out to explore a local patch of grassland, where I had seen a Redstart, with the hope of capturing some migrant species that had taken advantage of the fair weather. I had originally gone out with a small compact camera as I didn’t think I would find much.
Next thing I know there’s a male Wheatear on the deck feeding away on tiny insects. I then decided to run back home, when I say run I mean it, and grab my main camera and long lens. It was defiantly worth it, by the time I got back to the spot a female Wheatear had joined the party. I spent the rest of my time crawling around on the ground watching these awesome birds go about their business (even if I was getting a few funny looks from passers by!).
