Default 06 March 2013

Yesterday afternoon's visit to my favorite farm was disappointing, dull, overcast and dusty. Very little of interest to see or photograph, with just one exception, my first of the seasons Northern Wheatear.

One of my favourite Wheatear especially when consider the birds migration routes.

Miniature tracking devices have now revealed an epic 30000 kilometer migration from Sub Saharan Africa to their Arctic Breeding Grounds, what an amazing little bird

Your right, John, that beggars belief that they can travel so far. Nice capture
