Wheatear success...

The cool damp weather of recent weeks has been good for the breeding Wheatear, keeping their invertebrate food active and on the ground. The early broods have now fledged and are feeding themselves, so the parents can get straight on with a second brood. This photo of a speckly juvenile was taken this morning near the river mouth where a family of at least 5 young is very active on the rabbit grazed grassland between the Sea Kale plants that provide cover when danger threatens.
