A Stonechat in the Car Park

15th November 2013

We had popped into the new Abberton visitor centre to road test their facilities when I noticed a bird perched high on a Reedmace seed head. Between the car park and the reservoir fence there is a small pond with plenty of marginal vegetation including several stands of Reedmace and this was clearly an ideal habitat for a pair of Stonechats. Both birds were quite flighty, but on just one occasion the female let me approach close enough for a shot.
